Other Local Groups

communityThe ingredients of peacemaking include non-violent of communication, human rights, solidarity, self-determination, participatory governance, elimination of poverty and environmental stewardship.

We believe you would find that our list of area organizations includes meaningful examples of all each of these.

NOTE: Due to the pandemic many organizations have changed the structure of local meetings. Contact the organization directly for updated information.

If you represent one of the organizations below or want to be added the list, please e-mail any changes or additional information about your organization to Sarah Hong. You can also add your meeting times (and virtual meeting information) to our online Peace Calendar.
