AFSC-SENE works for comprehensive immigration reform.  The question of a 10 year old child a rally, “Which half of me will you deport?” reflects the fear that many families in our community live with.

AFSC-SENE works on two interwoven themes: Peacebuilding and Community Justice.

Our peace work engages the people in our region to support peaceful resolution of international conflicts. The program works for an end to the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (you might want to follow AFSC’s blog on Afghanistan) and for an end to U.S. military and economic support for the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands. At the local level we work to nurture a culture of peace through the Center for Nonviolent Solutions in Worcester and workshops on nonviolent action.

Our Community Justice work resists the militarization of our communities by supporting alternatives to military service, advocacy to end racial profiling, and campaigns to defund military spending and increased funding for programs that meet human needs. We work with immigrants and immigrant-allied groups in pushing for comprehensive immigration reform.
