Peace and Opposing Militarism
We believe that all human, financial, and community costs of war are unacceptable. As an organization dedicated to building a just and nonviolent world, PJALS opposes the billions our country spends on war and militarism and its devastating impact on our national and local economies, including cuts to education, health care, and basic human services.
To shift spending from war and militarism to education, healthcare, jobs, and vital services for families and communities, our efforts include workshops on nonviolence, nonviolent de-escalation trainings, rallies, legislative action, truth in recruitment outreach, and organizing to Bring Our Billions Home with other organizations including the local chapter of Veterans for Peace.

Spokane Veterans for Peace meets the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 6:45pm in the Community Building, 35 w. Main.
