Two closely related non-profit organizations carry out our mission:

Coalition for Peace Action

The Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) oversees the advocacy work of the organization, including lobbying our elected representatives and voter education. Donations to the CFPA are therefore not tax deductible.

CFPA has a Political Action Committee that organizes lobbying, demonstrations, vigils, briefings, and similar activities; and has standing with the United Nations as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). There are also currently four active local CFPA affiliates in central and southern New Jersey. A Steering Committee (board) meets monthly to oversee and coordinate policy, budget, and programs.

Peace Action Education

The Peace Action Education Fund (PAEF) has been granted 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt status by the IRS and conducts the educational work. Tax deductible contributions can be made to this entity.

PAEF has several working committees:

  • The Peace Education Committee organizes the Annual Conference and Interfaith Service for Peace, Week Without Violence, and other community education events as well as sending speakers, fact sheets, videos, and the like to schools, congregations, and community groups.
  • The Annual Concert Committee organizes Concerts for Peace to do outreach and raise funds for educational work.
  • The Help Increase the Peace (HIP) project , co-sponsored with the American Friends Service Committee, trains youth and adults in the skills of non-violent conflict resolution.
