1. Golden Rule Peace Boat
They are recovered and are currently restoring the Golden Rule which is the original peace boat that sail in the late 1950’s to end atmospheric nuclear testing. With the restoration and sailing of the Golden Rule once again, it will show that nuclear peace is attainable and that tenacity and bravery can overcome militarism.
2. Peace in Our Times
Formerly known at War Crimes Time, Peace in Our times gives the public information on war criminals, war crimes and the true cost of war. Concerned with the obvious and atrocious violations of international law committed by the U.S. government, this helps our justice-seeking allies and lawmakers to know the truth.
3. Vietnam Agent Orange Relief & Responsibility
This campaign is an action of Vietnamese Americans and United States Veterans who desire justice and peace by insisting that the government honor their legal and moral obligation to make restitution to all the victims of Agent Orange.
