The Heart of Our work is a Nonviolent Narrative
We see nonviolence as a way of life, a moral commitment and a social tool, which guides us in all that we do at FORusa.
As a society, too often have we worked toward social action while forgetting about the principle of nonviolence. FORusa reminds us of that concept and promotes the best in us to surface when we take action rather than our worst, no matter what is happening around us.
Things We Do
Strategic nonviolent movements are one of the most potent forces in the world. They oust dictators, change policy and realize the hopes of the people.
BUILD HEALTHY SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES
Outreach to local communities is at the root of our work. Forge relationships, give aid, support and help them grow into and reflect the vision of Beloved Community.
PREPARE A NEW GENERATION OF ACTIVISTS
FORusa training and tools for advocacy, organizing and mobilizing will equip future peace and justice leaders.
FOSTER TOLERANCE AND UNDERSTANDING
Nurture co-operation, improved understanding and acceptance of diverse religious and cultural perspectives.
DEMILITARIZE LIVES IN THE U.S. AND ABROAD
As a branch of IFOR’s international network, we work with partners around the world to end militarism in all of its forms.
We accomplish our work by:
Education. Tools. Training. Support.
Engaging the theology of nonviolent resistance.
Preparing communities for targeted nonviolent action grounded in deep abiding love.
We Grow the Global Peace Community
FORusa is part of a flourishing global Fellowship, a vibrant international and intergenerational peace and justice movement.
More than 70,000 constituents in the U.S. participate in our base-building work.
The violence of war in all of its forms is supported by racism and economic oppression. FORusa makes every effort to bring about real alternatives. As peace-activists, we work to minimize and prevent conflict escalation while seeking peaceful resolution. Historically, we have been active in global struggles. In more recent years, the main focus of our efforts have shifted to the U.S. and its root causes of violence and inequality.
We Impact Governments & Policy
FORusa endorses, and often provides, staff and volunteers to represent the Fellowship in organized alliances such as United National Antiwar Coalition, a network of individuals and organizations assembled to prevent U.S. use of military force worldwide.
FORusa consistently signs on to national coalition letters and petitions that mobilize religious and community leaders to press political and corporate decision-makers on public policy issues.
Making the Dream a Reality through Beloved Community
Committed to the philosophy and methods of nonviolence, we can create a society based on justice, equal opportunity, and love of one’s fellow human beings.
