Peace and Economic Justice

The Carolinas Peace and Economic Justice program is a community education and peace building program which builds alliances and support networks to create strategic links engaging those working for peace and alternatives to war and violence.  AFSC's commitment to peace and economic justice is based on the Quaker belief in life as sacred and the desire to avoid all violence.  AFSC tries to find peaceful solutions to conflicts and differences and to address the root causes of violence.  We work toward this goal by 

  • offering peace building and conflict resolution workshops
  • networking to create strategic links engaging those working for peace 
  • sponsoring exhibits and films highlighting issues of peace and economic justice
  • creating peace tables that promote nonviolence and conflict resolution
  • coordinating "Alternatives Fairs" which offer a wide spectrum of non-traditional opportunities for young people who are looking to serve their community

Who we are

AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
