About Us

The Washington Peace Center is a multi-issue, grassroots, anti-racist activist support organization working for peace, justice and nonviolent social change in the metropolitan Washington D.C. area.

Currently, the Peace Center serves as a central organizing and coalition hub for DC-based anti-war, social justice peace-focused organizations. Our main program areas are:

1) Education: To provide educational programs and materials such as teach-ins, film series and quarterly publication of the Washington Peace Letter;

2) Community Resources: To facilitate and encourage cooperation among anti-war, peace and social justice groups and to provide resources and structural support for groups and individuals to work more effectively on their own campaigns and in collaboration with others;

3) Action: To provide assistance and leadership for public demonstrations and direct actions that contribute to world peace and justice.
