This is the website for the local chapter of Veterans For Peace in Western North Carolina, based in Asheville.
We're also on Facebook: Veterans For Peace Chapter 099

You don't have to be a veteran to belong, just a person who wants peace and is committed to taking action to achieve it.

Joan Baez is quoted as saying, "Action is the antidote to despair."

If you feel despair at the many costs and endlessness of our wars please consider joining us in taking action.

Statement of Purpose

We, as military veterans, do hereby affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace. To this end we will work, with others both nationally and internationally

To increase public awareness of the causes and costs of war 


To restrain our governments from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations 


To end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons 


To seek justice for veterans and victims of war 


To abolish war as an instrument of national policy. 


To achieve these goals, members of Veterans For Peace pledge to use non-violent means and to maintain an organization that is both democratic and open with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests of the group for the larger purpose of world peace.

New Years Day vigil

 Bob is tooting his horn to wish everyone peace and Happy New Year!



Rather a cold and rainy day here in Asheville, but some members of Veterans for Peace still came to the vigil - the first one of the year. Still keeping a presence in downtown after all these years. Still pushing for peace, too.
