As Quakers we wish to be peacemakers in all our dealings,
whether personal, at work, or on the international stage. Quakers in Britain are
perhaps best known for their stand as objectors to war and for their giving of
alternative service, for example in the Friends Ambulance Unit in both world
wars. But a commitment to peace is relevant at all times - not only in wartime -
and in every sphere of daily life today. Besides our witness as individuals,
Quakers work for peace at a variety of levels. Locally, for example, we
work to introduce peace education and conflict resolution in schools.
Nationally, we campaign for disarmament and alternatives to military security.
Internationally, Quakers work with institutions in Brussels, Geneva and New York
on peace and disarmament concerns. Taken together, this work is our peace
