Peace Action New York State (PANYS) is the state affiliate of Peace Action, 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.
PANYS is a 501(c)4 membership organization that uses lobbying and direct political action to complement the work of the Peace Action Fund of New York State. We currently have 8 local community chapters in New York State. Since we are a grassroots organization, our local chapters take a large lead in determining our agenda. Each chapter works on local peace issues as well as state, national and global concerns.
