Mission Statement

The Peace Economy Project researches military spending, educates about the hazards of an unchecked military-industrial complex and advocates for conversion from a military to a more stable peace-based economy. We focus our attention on local weapons manufacturing and its connection to global militarization. We collaborate with other organizations to raise consciousness of where our tax dollars are invested and to encourage others to reinvest in their communities.

Description

The Peace Economy Project is a 36 year old organization, formally known as the St. Louis Economic Conversion Project. Historically, SLECP worked to create an economic conversion plan for the city of St. Louis to keep manufacturing jobs in the area for former military workers.

We continue to show a commitment for developing strategies to move our economy away from a military-industrial complex and towards a peace-based economy.
