War Resisters League

Who We Are

For over 90 years, War Resisters League has worked with imagination and determination to end the violence of war and eliminate its root causes through education, organizing, and nonviolent direct action. Today, the work of building a more peaceful and free world faces many serious challenges. As the US military projects its power globally through occupation, intervention, intimidation and its proxies; the variants and violence of militarism increasingly face inward to address enduring crisis through policing, repression, imprisonment, and deportation. WRL's legacy of resisting all wars, international or civil, continues through our work to build transnational solidarity as we grow connections with US-based organizations working toward community self-determination and transformation.

The WRL Pledge: The War Resisters League affirms that all war is a crime against humanity. We therefore are determined not to support any kind of war, international or civil, and to strive nonviolently for the removal of the causes of war, including racism, sexism, and all forms of human exploitation. www.warresisters.org
