You Can Start a VFP Chapter!

If you do not have a Veterans For Peace Chapter within 25 miles of your location, you should form a new chapter. Starting a new VFP chapter is an easy 4-step process. If you have any questions, please contact the national office at 314-725-6005.

  2. Sign up 10 military veterans. Special regional circumstances, may allow a local chapter a requirement of 5 veterans, if approved by the Board of Directors. Contact the Chapter Coordinator to determine requirements.
  3. Send a completed Chapter Status Petition to the VFP National Office with the 10 (or 5) veterans listed by name and including their branch of service and years served. The petition must be signed by a member who will serve as the initial chapter contact.
