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.

Chapter 099 at the Mexican border October 2016

From Jim Brown:  VFP out front in the SOA-Watch March to the Mexican Border in Nogalis, Arizona.   770 people marched before a rally, together, on both sides of the border.  Chris Berg, John Spitzberg, Ken Jones and Jim Brown were marching.   Banner was calling attention to Veterans being deported, followed by 20 VFP Flags in the front.   Picture by Josie Lenwell with Code Pink.
