Peace Action of Michigan, a state affiliate of Peace Action,
is a democratic grassroots organization that informs, motivates
and organizes people to achieve a new foreign policy. This
policy is based on the abolition of all weapons of mass destruction,
and on the primacy of non-violence, human rights, socially
just international law, and respectful participation with
international institutions as the basis of that policy.
Peace through Non-violence
Understanding and Compassion
Commitment and Persistence
We share a vision of world peace: where the menace of nuclear
weapons has forever been erased from our planet, where war
has been abolished as a method of solving conflicts, where
all human beings are assumed the wherewithal to live in health
and dignity, where no one is denied the opportunity to participate
in make decisions that affect the common good.
In this world, the belief that
national security is synonymous with military
might gives way to recognition of the need for a broader concept
of common security, in which the safety of each individual,
society and the world as a whole is considered the mutual
responsibility of all. We recognize that our global security
is threatened by the misuse of resources by the military,
and by the destruction of the environment. We are committed
to reversing this view. This involves using non-violent means
of resolving international conflicts. We also work together
to protect the ecosphere on which we all depend.
In this world, we all share
responsibility for the common good. Whether in our community
work, our national work, or our international work, we are
all called to serve as guardians of peace, justice and the
environment. Indeed, it is through this common guardianship
that lasting peace is ultimately attained.
Mobilize members and other citizens to take action
on critical issues of peace with justice, to persuade policy
makers and citizens:
1. Stopping Iraq / Mid-East wars;
2. Eliminating nuclear weapons/WMD;
3. Restructuring Federal budget priorities.
Expand membership quantity and diversity (in all aspects
including geographic) and develop members abilities
and involvement in PA MI.
Organize & mobilize members and citizens through
comprehensive communications in multiple media that focus
on PA MIs mission.
