Through VFP chapter actions, individual member efforts, and national campaigns, Veterans For Peace sharpens awareness about the true costs of war and serves as an advocate for peace as a national policy.
Many VFP members work together with members of their communities, shifting public opinion through grassroots organizing and education. Some VFP members form local chapters and meet regularly, attend events and direct actions, and organize visits to their legislators to push important VFP campaigns and issues.
Chapter leaders are the liaison between national VFP and local chapters. They host meetings, attend national organizing calls, report chapter actions, and help us maintain communication with members. National office provides printed materials, technical support, and training resources to our chapter leaders. All new chapters receive a new chapter charter with a VFP flag, once approved by the board of directors.
If you have any questions about VFP chapters, email the membership coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
