We are committed to education and advocacy, to the prevention of armed aggression and to the reduction and eventual abolition of all nuclear weapons through enforceable international law. Within the Chicagoland area, we work with individuals, faith-based peace and justice committees, and national and international organizations to promote nonviolent conflict resolution throughout the world.

Peace Action's Long Range Strategic Plan
This five-year strategic plan was shaped through responses to an affiliate survey; discussion among the Peace Action and Peace Action Education Fund Boards; a focus group with national staff; interviews with key affiliate staff and volunteer leadership; and discussion with attendees at the 2010 national Organizers' Meeting. It was developed by the Joint Strategy Committee of the two Boards.
New challenges and opportunities that we cannot now envision may make it necessary to modify this plan. But, by establishing goals, identifying clear objectives, and outlining specific strategies for each, the plan provides the Peace Action network the means to work together cohesively and effectively.
We hope and expect that this plan will inform our work over the next five years and inspire us to work harder and smarter for peace.
