We and our allies are getting out early on this one. No partisanship. No pretenses. No political honeymoons. We will be delivering this petition to whoever is elected U.S. president before inauguration day.
Please take a few seconds now to get your name on the first pages of this petition to the 45th President of the United States: We call on you to end perpetual war by the United States Government. As signers of this petition, we commit ourselves to building nonviolent pressure to end continual U.S. warfare. We also reject our country’s bloated military spending and massive arms sales that make the USA the world’s leading arms trafficker by a huge margin.
Here’s what people are saying about our recent #NoWar2016 conference:
“With a country that seems to be engaged in perpetual war, this conference was an important step towards reorienting a peace & justice movement.” — Bill Fletcher Jr, author, columnist, organizer.
“This year’s World Beyond War Conference was an extraordinary gathering of activists, writers, and community organizers — a critical step in building power and the step by step development of an ever more powerful and effective peace movement.” — Gar Alperovitz, author, historian, political economist.

We have a great selection of anti-war books, including our new one: A Global Security System, which has been receiving high praise:
“What a treasure. It is so well written and conceptualized. The beautiful text and design immediately captured the attention and imagination of my 90 graduate and undergraduate students. Visually and substantively, the clarity of the book appeals to young people in a way textbooks have not.” —Barbara Wien, American University
