About Us

"40 years of peace action in Texas"

Peace Action was created by the merger of SANE and The Freeze. For more than three decades we have effectively mobilized for peace and disarmament.

As the nation's largest grassroots peace group we get result: from the 1963 treaty to ban above ground nuclear testing, to the 1996 signing of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treat, to helping end the war in Vietnam, to blocking weapons sales and bringing attention to human rights issues around the world.

At Peace Action we believe...

...that every person has the right to live without the threat of nuclear weapons.
There are over 30,000 nuclear weapons in the world. The US and Russia still have thousands of nuclear weapons pointed at each other, ready to launch in minutes. While the Cold War may have ended, the nuclear threat has not. The only way to ensure that nuclear weapons will never be used - whether purposefully, or accidentally - is global abolition. We can build a nuclear weapons free world for future generations.

...that war is not a suitable response to conflict.
For over 40 years Peace Action has worked for an environment where all are free from violence and war. We understand that long standing global conflicts require long-term solutions, and that US foreign policy has a lasting effect on the world. We work to promote a new foreign policy for the US based on support for human rights and democracy, reducing the threat from weapons of mass destruction, and cooperation with the world community.

...that America has the resources to both protect and provide for its citizens.
As the Pentagonís budget soars to $400 billion, 17% of American children live in poverty. For what the US will spend on Missile Defense in one year we could: put over a million children through Head Start OR provide healthcare for over 3.5 million children OR create over 100,000 units of affordable housing OR hire over 160,000 elementary school teachers (source: National Priorities Project).

At Peace Action our priorities are clear.

We believe, given the right tools, ordinary people can change the world.
