Peace Action is a national, grassroots organization committed to organizing a citizen movement. We share a vision of world peace in which:
-the menace of nuclear weapons has forever been erased from our planet
-war has been abolished as a method of solving conflicts
-all human beings are assured the wherewithal to live in health and dignity
-no one is denied the opportunity to participate in making decisions that affect the common good.
At Peace Action, we believe that war is not a suitable response to conflict, that every person has the right to live without the threat from nuclear weapons and that America has the resources and responsibility to both protect and provide for its citizens.
Peace Action is the nation’s largest grassroots peace network with chapters and affiliates in states across the country. We organize our network to place pressure on Congress and the Administration through write-in campaigns, Internet actions, citizen lobbying and direct action. Through a close relationship with progressive members of Congress, we play a key role in devising strategies to move forward peace legislation. As a leading member of various coalitions, we lend our expertise and large network to achieving common goals.
