Something really big is happening and you can be part of it

What if all of us who wish for peace get together? World Beyond War is a global nonviolent movement that can bring us together to fully end the institution of war and establish a just and sustainable peace.

All individuals and organizations, all over the world, are invited to sign a statement in support of ending all war, and to join in the planning of a new movement to be launched on September 21, 2014, the International Day of Peace. This is the statement:


I understand that wars and militarism
  make us less safe rather than protect us,
that they
  kill, injure and traumatize adults, children and infants,
  severely damage the natural environment,
  erode civil liberties,
  and drain our economies,
     siphoning resources from life-affirming activities. 

I commit to engage in and support nonviolent efforts
  to end all war and preparations for war and
  to create a sustainable and just peace.

This July 28 is the centennial of World War I–“the war to end all wars.” World Beyond War and we believe the time has come to use peace to end all wars.

We encourage you to add your name on the website, and then roam around the website. You wouldn’t believe how many ways you can work for peace—through small acts like wearing clothes or jewelry with peace messages to hosting programs to being trained in nonviolence—check out their suggestions at

This is the time. The momentum is building.

We invite you to share your experiences and perspective with the Beyond War Northwest learning community in order to help us achieve greater clarity and effectiveness in our outreach.
