About Peace Action
Peace Action: We Are Today’s Peace Movement
Peace Action works for smarter American approaches to global problems. If we want to address problems like war, the nuclear threat, poverty, global warming, terrorism — the U.S. needs to work together, cooperatively, with other nations.
It also means overcoming the partisan politics and divisive rhetoric that often drown out alternatives to war. By getting regular Americans involved, we build the political will needed to break through that deadlock. Our success comes from engaging average citizens in foreign policy issues like no other organization.
