Jewish Reconstructionist Congregaton: Peace Dialogue Committee
We are a group of JRC members who believe strongly that there should be a Jewish voice, grounded in Jewish values, in the peace and justice movement. We are concerned that Jewish organizations are not represented in on-going peace and justice activities in this area, especially in North Shore communities. We want to find a way for Jews like us to participate in those activities as Jews, even as we affirm our support for Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.
Northbrook Peace Committee
We started out as a group of people who live or work in Northbrook, Illinois, but we now have many supporters from other towns. We are against the continuation of the war in Iraq. We have no formal organizational structure, no office, and no paid staff. We are people of all ages who care. We are not affiliated with any other group, although we do work with other groups. We will do what we can do and what we choose to do in order to promote peace and support a responsible United States foreign policy.
Chicago Area Peace Action
For the past thirty-two years the Chicago Area Peace Action (CAPA), formerly North Suburban Peace Initiative (NSPI) has used education and action to work for peace on a range of issues with particular focus on the reduction and eventual abolition of nuclear weapons. CAPA presents public forums with nationally known speakers and publishes a quarterly newsletter. In addition, CAPA organizes public witness, including signature ads in local newspapers and petitions to decision-makers. CAPA also provides discussion leaders, video-tapes and reading materials. We invite others to join us in these efforts.
The Peace and Justice Committee of the Unitarian Church of Evanston
The Peace and Justice Committee of the Unitarian Church of Evanston was formed during our congregation's opposition to the US war in Afghanistan in October, 2001. We opposed the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March, 2003 with a congregational vote and have worked since then to end the U.S. occupation of Iraq. We join with the Coalition in celebration of Evanston becoming a City of Peace and calling for immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.
