Since 2011, millions of people have fled violence in Syria. AFSC is responding to this crisis in several ways—from urging Congress and U.S. communities to welcome refugees to advocating for a comprehensive arms embargo and other nonviolent steps to address the conflict.
People affected by conflict and instability are often best positioned to know what their communities need to create lasting peace. AFSC connects communities worldwide to foster peace, sustainability, and shared security.
Since 1948 AFSC has worked with Palestinians, Israelis, and the international community to realize a just and lasting peace between Palestinians and Israelis.
Militarism and war do not keep us safe. The U.S. needs a more ethical, effective, and less costly foreign policy to address today’s interdependent world.
Colonialism, slavery, war, genocide, and economic devastation leave legacies of trauma that can perpetuate cycles of violence.
Global south leaders—from the grassroots, civil society, and government—come together to learn, exchange ideas, and collectively solve problems through AFSC’s Dialogue and Exchange Program (DEP).
