We advocate for a world without racism, sexism, classism and for the rights of LGBTQ people. We denounce multinational corporate based systems of inequality, where vast sums of wealth are concentrated in the bank accounts of a few. We decry the military industrial complex and control of the arms manufacturers over our government and media.We believe all people have a right to self-determination- Native Americans, women, ethnic minorities, gender oppressed people. We believe in the rights of nature, we strive to make the connection between militarism and climate change. We are opposed to resource and labor exploitation in the US and internationally. We support human right movements locally, nationally and abroad.
Founded as Milwaukee Mobilization for Survival in March of 1977, we were part of a national network of national peace and justice groups organized around the issues of nuclear weapons, nuclear power, the escalating arms race and a decline in funding for human needs. National Mobilization for Survival grew to include over 125 peace and justice groups before its national office closed in 1992.
In January 1996 we affiliated with National Peace Action, which had been formed from the merger of SANE and the Nuclear Freeze Campaign. It is the largest grassroots peace and disarmament group in the country. In 1999 we became Peace Action-Wisconsin to reflect our statewide scope and membership.
We continue today with our Stand for Peace with flags and peace signs on different corners of the Milwaukee area every Saturday from noon-1pm, socially distanced and wearing masks. We aren't having in-person events right now, but we send a email calendar of events concerning peace and justice. We sponsor informative webinars on vital issues. We host the End the Wars Coalition of Milwaukee, which meets online on every 3rd Wednesday of the month, it is open for everyone to attend.
Check our calendar for information on links and locations of events.
