The heart of VFP’s work is carried out by our 100+ chapters in the U.S. and Vietnam. Members determine the most effective way to carry out this work in their community.
Always the goal is to change public opinion in the U.S. from an unsustainable culture of militarism and commercialism to one of peace, democracy, and sustainability. We do this primarily, although not exclusively, through grassroots organizing and education at the local level.
Chapter activities are diverse and far ranging, including projects to make reparations to victims of war in Iraq and Vietnam; counseling and mentoring veterans affected by PTSD, homelessness and sexual trauma; and building cultures of peace through Earth Summits, Peace Poetry Contests and other celebrations, street actions and community projects.
Through individualized chapter actions 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.
