AFSC’s Pacific Northwest Region: A Proud Legacy

The American Friends Service Committee has championed the cause of peace and social justice in the Pacific Northwest for over 65 years.  Our Seattle office was founded in 1942 to assist Japanese Americans and vigorously oppose their internment.

Over the years AFSC Seattle has advocated for Native American treaty rights, mobilized to end war, organized for education reform and desegregation, promoted a just peace in the Middle East, challenged homophobia, campaigned to end apartheid, and supported workers of color to integrate the construction industry among many other projects.
