The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists set the Doomsday Clock at 90 seconds to midnight in early 2023, largely but not exclusively due to the mounting risks associated with the ongoing war in Ukraine. 

Upcoming Events

A Beyond War NW book discussion group is now forming. We will read and discuss together The Third Harmony : Nonviolence and The New Story of Human Nature, by Michael N. Nagler. The group will meet over Zoom, once a week for four weeks.  The gathering meets on Sunday afternoons for about 90 minutes and plans to begin in April 2023. If you are interested in joining in on the discussion contact Ann at

Upcoming Events

Our vision is an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just world that works for all.

Our purpose is to focus on developing the Beyond War message in new forms to keep the principles and practices dynamic, alive, contemporary, relevant, and cross-cultural,

to empower people to educate themselves  about the options for resolving conflict that do not involve violence,

to create social change through meaningful and rewarding relationship building,

and to work for peace, peacefully.
