A.J. Muste once wrote, “There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.”    In other words, among other things, we cannot hope to achieve peace by using methods that are not peaceful.  Here are some sites that work on one of the central issues of our time (and, really, of ANY time).

I will add more to this list later, so please check back, or post a reply if you are concerned with this issue.  I am not including local peace groups in this list, for the most part, so if you need the name of a group in your particular region or city, please let me know.  Again, this list just scratches the surface.
