Peace demands action.

We envision a world where all beings are free from the threat of war and oppression. We stand together as one human family to resolve conflicts peacefully in all our endeavors and support human rights for all.

Our mission is to abolish war, particularly as an instrument of U.S. policy, and to build a culture of peace through personal responsibility and witness, education, and promotion of human needs over militarism.

Peace is not the absence of violence, it is the presence of justice.

— Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

NC Peace Action stands with all those who live where justice has not yet reached. We work to bring justice and peace to all 100 of North Carolina’s counties, and beyond. Stand with us!
