Throughout our history, AFSC has been a catalyst for change by providing a platform for individual change makers—people who are willing to stand tall and bear witness for peace and justice. We supported the freedom riders and marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks during the civil rights movement and counseled conscientious objectors and were a vital part of the movement that helped bring an end to the misguided war in Vietnam.
Today, AFSC is still standing with those who have the courage to speak up for a better world—one person and one community at a time. The individuals highlighted below include beneficiaries of our programs, current and past interns, and a founder of one of our regional offices. These are just six of many inspiring stories from the AFSC community. Help continue to support and inspire the next generation of peacemakers by giving here.
