Conversations about Race and Equity

Our world views, as well as opportunities that are available, depend on our background.  Definitions of peace, education and equality change according to the experiences of those defining the words. One factor that affects the way we live and relate to each other is race. Although it is not always a primary focus, the American Friends Service

Committee’s commitment to the dignity and worth of each person frequently fosters work on the complicated issues of racism and inequity.

9 Years: War is not the answer!

On October 7 – 10, peace and justice groups around the world will mark the 9th year of the launch of the Afghanistan war with internationally coordinated local, grassroots, and community events.

Families who lost love ones on September 11 responded with, ”Our grief is not a cry for war!” and “War is not the answer!”

That was true then and even truer now. Now a growing majority believes that war in Afghanistan is and was a mistake and must come to an end.
