The world events of October 2023 and the continued siege of Gaza have been a grim and painful reminder of the tragedy of war, and the continued threat that injustice and oppression pose to peace and well-being for all people. The human suffering defies our imagination, and a ceasefire is an urgent and absolutely necessary first step. 

Below please find tools and resources we think may be helpful in your organizing for a world without war. We do not presume to offer a comprehensive analysis or long-term proposals, nor do we believe this resource list to be exhaustive. 

As we have learned over 100 years of activism, the work of peace-building and resistance to oppression and violence is constantly unfolding. But the conviction that war is a crime against humanity has never been more relevant.

    Interest in war tax resistance is high, as people search for ways to withdraw financial support for the massacre happening in Gaza. Not including new funding, the US provides Israel over $3 billion every year, with almost the entire amount being used to support the Israeli military. Since World War II, the US had dedicated more foreign aid to Israel than any other country.
