Organization Information

Mission Statement

The Peace Action Fund of New York State is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We are dedicated to promoting the non-violent resolution of conflict, the abolition of nuclear weapons, halting the global spread of conventional arms, building a human rights culture and supporting human needs instead of militarism. We pursue these goals through the production and dissemination of educational materials for the public, activists and policy makers, as well as through community organizing initiatives and public outreach.

Description

The Peace Action Fund of New York State (PAFNYS), along with Peace Action New York State (PANYS) is an affiliate of national Peace Action, the largest grassroots peace organization in the United States which began in 1957 as the Committee for SANE Nuclear Policy. We are very proud of our student organizing program, which began in 2011 and with student chapters on 21 campuses around New York State. We currently have twelve community chapters and over 3000 members in New York State. Since we are a grassroots organization, our local chapters take a large lead in determining our agenda. Each chapter works on local peace issues as well as state, national and global concerns.
