The War Resisters League affirms that all war is a crime against humanity.  We are determined not to support any kind of war, international or civil, and to strive nonviolently for the removal of all causes of war, including racism, sexism and all forms of exploitation.

Let's Raise $20,000!

For 95 years, War Resisters League has built a radical nonviolent movement against war and militarism across the world. From our humble beginnings in 1923 to now, we've been able to truly stay radical in our politics, organizing, and actions through the generosity of folks like you. Give as generously as you can today to keep us resourced for the continued struggle ahead.

As an organization that strives to target and dismantle war at its root causes, we believe in radically different ways of being than what our current world allows. We imagine a world where all people breathe clean air and drink clean water, where all people share what we grow and create, where all people live full, unencumbered lives. Where the land is returned and reparations are paid. When we recognize our reality and the current inheritance of future generations - poisonous wildfires, rising waters, the privatization of every resource we need to stay alive - we gain clarity on our greatest enemies.
