Statement of Purpose

The Fellowship of Reconciliation USA is composed of people who recognize the essential unity of all creation and have joined together to explore the power of love and truth for resolving human conflict. While it has always been vigorous in its opposition to war, FOR-USA has insisted equally that this effort must be based on a commitment to the achieving of a just and peaceful world community, with full dignity and freedom for every human being.

In working out these objectives, FOR-USA seeks the company of people of faith who will respond to conflict nonviolently, seeking reconciliation through compassionate action. FOR-USA encourages the integration of faith into the lives of individual members. At the same time it is a special role of FOR-USA to extend the boundaries of community and affirm its diversity of religious traditions as it seeks the resolution of conflict by the united efforts of people of many faiths.

In the development of its program, FOR-USA depends upon persons who seek to apply these principles to every area of life.

Is there an issue or cause you want to speak out about and know others who feel the same way, but have no idea how to prepare or organize a grassroots movement? Or maybe you want to be a part of taking responsibility for what’s happening in your community and ready to stand up? We can help.

Grassroots advocacy means empowering individual citizens to take a more active role in the legislative and political processes. And more people than ever before are ready to take action!

FOR-USA knows it is so much easier to keep doing what we have been taught, what we know works to bring in as much funding to our organization as possible. And that is to base everything we do on the comfort of white donors, who hold the most wealth. But this simply perpetuates the problem of “unexamined wealth.”  

It is much harder to convince donors, and ourselves, to confront difficult truths about historical atrocities like colonization and slavery, wealth disparities, unearned privileges, the harm caused by capitalism, and the process toward reparation. It is riskier. But if our organization is going to fulfill its promise, we must fundraise in a way that does not uphold white moderation and white supremacy. 

Fundraisers and donors need to consider how wealth was created and at what price.

Donations of $50 or more will automatically receive a one year subscription to Fellowship Magazine. Existing subscriptions are renewed for a full year.
