The Western New York Peace Center works for peace and justice at home and abroad. We are dedicated to enriching the quality of life in our local community through collaborating and novement buillding for the prevention of violence to people and the environment. Peaceful conflict resolution among people and within institutions, especially for youth, is central to our mission.
Founded in 1967 by Buffalonians as a chapter of Clergy and Laity Concerned, Peace Center members initially devoted their efforts to ending the Vietnam War. Over the years, our work has expanded to address changing global and local problems.
We strengthen community and challenge power structures to support the common good. We strive for comprehensive justice and respect for all.
We work through taskforces and committees, providing many opportunities to learn, reflect, and act contructively to address issues of concern to our membership and create a culture of peace.
