Troops Out Now
A national grassroots coalition of antiwar activists, trade unionists, solidarity activists, and community organizers. As we enter a new phase of the antiwar struggle, we believe that the only force that will stop the war is a militant, multinational, grassroots movement. We also oppose other acts of militarism.
United for Peace
A coalition of more than 1300 local and national groups throughout the U.S. who have joined together to protest the immoral and disastrous Iraq War and oppose our government's policy of permanent warfare and empire-building.

Churches for Middle East Peace
A coalition of national churches and agencies, we focus on Washington in the knowledge that sound U.S. policy is crucial to achieving and maintaining just and stable relationships throughout the Middle East. We help the members of our organizations advocate in a knowledgeable, timely and effective way their concerns about justice and peace for all people and countries in the region.
Religions for Peace
We envision a world in which people of distinct religious communities live together in respect and mutual support, creating paths to peace and justice. We gather people from religious communities in the U.S., promote multi-religious cooperation for peace and justice, build on the spiritual, human, and institutional resources of our communities, and enhance mutual understanding.
