Be a student leader for peace, and a check on U.S. foreign policy.
In the PANYS student network, you’ll learn and be active in the political process, lobbying your Representatives to change U.S. foreign policy, so it is grounded in human needs, and not militarism.
This year, Peace Action student activists met with Representatives Paul Tonko, Tom Suozzi and Chris Collins. They had a non-violent direct action training with Amnesty International, volunteered with refugees in their local communities, heard from field researchers working on the Yemen crisis, and lobbied their Representatives in Washington, DC. Also, organizers receive a $500/semester stipend. Across New York, students are creating meaningful change for their local and global communities through legislative action. We want you, or students you know, to be a part of this movement.
