Peace And International Outreach Committee

For Quakers, one of our most cherished value is Peace. The Peace Testimony of Quakers does not stem from a belief that peace is preferable to any other alternative, but rather from the personal knowledge that there is “that of God in everyone.” But we understand that Peace is not just about the absence of war, but also the absence of the causes of war – oppression, violence, and aggression.

The Peace and International Outreach Committee has multiple functions.  We meet once a month for discussions, and participate in other activities, such as marches, vigils, and movie nights.  Most members are involved with other peace or international organizations.   Part of our mission includes researching peace organizations, both domestic and international. A discussion of peace-keeping events and organizations fills the majority of time in our meetings.
