Philly- who we are:
We are a women-initiated grassroots peace and justice movement to end war and redirect our resources toward life-affirming human needs and a sustainable society.
We reject fear-based politics that justify violence. We work towards policies based on compassion, kindness and a commitment to international cooperation.
