What Does VFP Do?
Exposing the True Costs of War: When talking about the total costs of war, it is necessary to look at the entire picture. The costs associated with war and militarism can be difficult to measure, but VFP recognizes the need to address all levels of these costs.
Building a Culture of Peace: Our society today is one that finds violence acceptable and inevitable. In many small ways our culture teaches us that war is noble. To build a culture of peace, we will need to not only end war but also become a peaceful society within our own communities.
Healing the Wounds of War: Central to the call for peace is healing the wounds of war - whether those wounds be in the countries where bombs were dropped or in the homes and hearts of veterans in our own society.
