NJ Peace Action

About New Jersey Peace Action

Peace Action is the nation's largest grass roots organization. It was founded as SANE (later to become SANE/Freeze) in 1957.

Our goals are:

  • Abolish Nuclear War
  • Promote a more peaceful economy
  • Bring an end to weapons trafficking
  • Encourage non-military solutions to international conflicts
  • Promote conflict resolution at all levels.

Peace Action's national headquarters are in Washington D.C. Policies are decided democratically at annual national conferences and through a Board of Directors elected by the grassroots affiliates.

The Northern New Jersey Affiliate - NJ Peace Action, always one of the nation's most active groups, is based in Bloomfield with chapters throughout the state local communities.

What we do...

  • We lobby for policy changes in Congress, the United Nations, Trenton and in towns like yours
  • We educate and publish a hotline on federal legislation and annual voting records for every member of congress on peace and justice issues
  • We print fact sheets to better inform the public, hold public meetings on important issues and speak out in the press
  • We promote conflict resolution programs in New Jersey Schools and encourage future generations to solve problems
  • We organize at the grassroots level to encourage citizens to vote for candidates who support our views on peace and social issues.
