Our Focus in 2021: End Endless War

For the better part of two decades, Congress has ceded war powers to the executive branch. Congress must take back its authority by holding debates and votes every time the U.S. considers war. As a first step, Congress must repeal the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMFs).

As a Quaker organization, we hold firm to our faith that war is not the answer.

Lobbying Resources

Meeting face to face with your members of Congress is the single most effective way to persuade them to support an issue you care about.

Organizing on Your Team and With Your Community

Numbers make a difference, and legislators will be more inclined to vote your way if they feel there is a groundswell of support behind your position. You can create that wave through community education.

Media Resources

Working with the media is an effective way to advocate; members of Congress pay close attention to their local media — especially when they’re mentioned by name.
