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 committee brings attention to the cause of Peace, both at home and abroad. The members of the Peace committee are concerned with “shining light in dark places”, illuminating the injustice, the oppression and the welling-up of violence.

On behalf of the Meeting, the Peace and International Outreach Committee, provides education, resources and recommendations to the meeting for action on behalf of the cause of Peace. The committee is open to all who want to share in their work for peace.
