Our Goals

Peace Action is the nation’s largest grassroots peace network, with chapters and affiliates across the country placing pressure on Congress and the Administration to promote peace. At Peace Action, we believe that war is never a suitable response to conflict, that every person has the right to live without the threat from war and that America has the resources and responsibility to both protect and provide for its citizens.

Peace Action Fund of New York State

The Peace Action Fund of New York State is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We are dedicated to promoting the non-violent resolution of conflict, the abolition of nuclear weapons, halting the global spread of conventional arms, building a human rights culture and supporting human needs instead of militarism. We pursue these goals through the production and dissemination of educational materials for the public, activists and policy makers, as well as through community organizing initiatives and public outreach.
