AFSC's Western Massachusetts program, founded in 1968, focuses on nonviolence training, study courses and dialogues on economic justice, campaigns against U.S. military intervention, and education and action to combat racism, classism, and homophobia.
Western Massachusetts faces problems of growing economic disparity, an increased tendency to scapegoat the poor and other marginalized social groups, a deterioration in public trust in local, state and federal government, along with increased efforts to militarize our economy and our communities.
