FOR-USA is led by a diverse group of individual “defenders of peace,” who have come together as one fellowship, united in purpose. Whether organizing and leading a demonstration, advocating to change policies, providing financial support, or supporting our local chapters, each FOR-USA representative is dedicated to helping our members connect and take action to create permanent positive change.
