The East Bay Chapter of Veterans for Peace meets on the 2nd Saturday morning of every month, from 10am to noon. All veterans and peace-loving people are invited to join us.
Veterans For Peace, Inc. (VFP) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational and humanitarian organization dedicated to the abolishment of war.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: We, having dutifully served our nation, do hereby affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace. To this end we will work, with others: (a) To increase public awareness of the costs of war, (b) To restrain our government from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations, (c) To end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons, (d) To seek justice for veterans and victims of war, (e) To abolish war as an instrument of national policy.
To achieve these goals, members of Veterans For Peace pledge to use non-violent means and to maintain an organization that is both democratic and open with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests of the group for the larger purpose of world peace.
