Grassroots Advocacy

Who we are

FOR-USA is the U.S. based branch of the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR) with affiliates in over 50 countries. Fellowship of Reconciliation USA (FOR-USA) was predicated on a dream of living in a just world with social equality for all.

Mission

FOR-USA’s mission is to organize, train, and grow a diverse movement that welcomes all people of conscience to end structures of violence and war, and create peace through the transformative power of nonviolence. 


Legacy

Since 1915, FOR-USA has carried out programs and educational projects concerned with domestic and international peace and justice, nonviolent alternatives to conflict.

FOR-USA’s success and longevity has been due to our ability to adapt, by taking our core principles and applying it to the context of the times.

Love and truth can resolve human conflict

Protecting Democracy

IFOR members have been supportive of the principles found in the charter of the United Nations since before the UN’s founding in 1945.  The most notable exception is that IFOR members do not support the UN providing legitimacy to any armed conflict.

IFOR representatives engage in monitoring, advising, providing education, networking and in some instances, lobbying.

Partners & Allies

FOR-USA leaders and members work tirelessly to improve, if not change, public policy and views to realize an equitable society. We establish numerous cooperative partnerships, often working in coalition with other faith-based advocacy groups, and leading national peace & justice organizations, enabling us to extend our resources and efforts, with the ultimate hope of reaching this goal.

We Believe Peace is a Timeless Cause and We are Dedicated to Liberation for all
