CAPA Today

Today, our works consists of collaborating with local Chicago as well as national organizations in order to form a more cohesive peace and social justice and environmental movement. CAPA’s mission is to educate and activate the public on issues from nuclear disarmament to climate change.

The group focuses on 6 major topics:

  • Global Climate Change
  • Nuclear Arms – Nonproliferation & Abolition
  • Military Spending
  • U.S. in Conflict
  • U.S. Foreign Policy
  • Social Justice

We are fortunate to share the guidance and resources of national Peace Action and its excellent staff.

We have an active, committed Board of Directors.
