War is not ending on its own. That’s why we founded World BEYOND War as a global, grassroots people-powered movement for peace. We provide the platform, tools, and resources for education, advocacy, and movement-building to advance strategies to demilitarize, manage conflict nonviolently, and cultivate a culture of peace. Now I’m reaching out to invite you to be a World BEYOND War chapter coordinator in your community! Email me to get started.
What’s involved with starting a chapter?
- Be familiar with World BEYOND War’s mission to abolish the institution of war and replace it with an alternative global security system. (Plus, get discounts on our book and online courses!)
- Collect signatures on the Declaration of Peace to help build a mass movement. (Over 75,000 individuals from 175 countries have signed already!)
- Communicate with individuals and organizations in your region, and serve as a liaison to World BEYOND War.
- Work with other World BEYOND War members in your community to organize activities, campaigns, and events, such film screenings, book talks, guest lectures, discussion groups, peaceful protests, petitions, and more.
- Help fundraise for World BEYOND War.
- Assist with projects, like researching and writing articles and fact sheets, social media campaigning, media outreach, and art-making!
World BEYOND War will:
- Provide you with free educational resources and organizing training for your chapter.
- Create a free webpage and email listserv for your chapter.
- Publicize your events and recruit volunteers.
- Connect you with individuals and organizations around the world working on similar campaigns to yours, to share expertise and activism.
- Share your news with a wider global audience through our email list, website, and social media.
