United for peace and justice

We come together to turn the tide, to overwhelm war with peace, and oppression with justice. . . . We seek to build a broad mass movement for peace and justice composed of all who are threatened by the new war program. We envision UFPJ as a movement-building coalition that coordinates and supports the work of existing groups and builds linkages and solidarity where none exist. . . . We will pay special attention in all aspects of our work to the inclusion and leadership of constituencies bearing the brunt of war’s impacts at home, such as people of color, youth, women, and workers.

 

Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament

CND campaigns non-violently to achieve British nuclear disarmament – to get rid of the Trident nuclear weapons system and stop its replacement. But we recognise that Britain’s nuclear weapons are only a small part of the problem, so we also campaign for a global nuclear weapons ban.

 

The Brady organization

The mission of the Brady organization and its many local chapters is to create a safer America by ending America's gun violence epidemic. 

 

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence. Moms Demand Action campaigns for new and stronger solutions to lax gun laws and loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our families. Moms Demand Action has established a chapter in every state of the country and, along with Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Students Demand Action and the Everytown Survivor Network, it is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country with more than 5 million supporters and more than 350,000 donors. 

 

International alert

Our purpose is to contribute to peace, and inspire, inform, support and enhance the efforts of others to do so.

By ‘peace’, we mean the capacity within and between societies to anticipate and manage conflicts without violence, while collaborating to improve people’s lives. This means that people see processes and outcomes relating to governance, safety, livelihoods, justice and wellbeing as fair, and that people trust each other and those in power, and work together for their mutual benefit.

We achieve this by:

  • Working with people directly affected by conflict to find peaceful solutions

  • Shaping policies and practices to support peace

  • Collaborating with all those striving for peace to strengthen our collective voice and impact

 

Control Arms

Control Arms advocates for greater controls in the international arms trade to end the human suffering caused by the irresponsible arms trade, and to stop arms transfers that fuel conflict, systemic armed violence, poverty and serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law.
