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.

For More Information (Including how to become a member):

Join us for the weekly vigil at Pack Square Vance Monument, Tuesdays from 4:30 to 5:30pm.
MONTHLY MEETING TIME: Second Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm

Note that we are currently meeting at The Center for Art and Spirit, One School Road, in West Asheville

Local Chapter Champions Asheville's Welcoming Nature

Garland and Ellen Walker have created this small poster/sign for VFP Chapter 099 to distribute around town to businesses and wherever who want to make sure the spirit of peace is known at their place and in Asheville as a whole. At the bottom you'll also see information about contacting our chapter. Ours is an important mission and more people need to know about us. Thanks to Ellen and Garland!
You can find the file for printing yourself here on this page or make a comment requesting to have the number you'd like to have printed and provided to you.
This is an easy way to take action fighting the despair we might feel about the state of our state and nation.
