About Us

Peace Action West works for smarter American approaches to global problems. If we want to address problems like war, poverty, global warming, terrorism -- the US needs to work together, cooperatively, with other nations. It also means overcoming the partisan politics and divisive rhetoric that often drown out alternatives to war.

By getting regular Americans involved, we build the political will to break that deadlock. We're the group behind the treaty that ended atmospheric nuclear testing, we stopped President Bush's new nukes, and now we're leading the charge for peaceful alternatives in Afghanistan. Our success comes from engaging average citizens like no other organization. Peace Action West's thousands of members make their voices count on matters that shape our world. Please join us, and help make this work possible by making a donation here.
