F.O.R. CENTRAL TEXAS (AUSTIN)

The Central Texas chapter of F.O.R. dates back to WWII where F.O.R. members refused to participate in killing and were some of the earliest conscience objectors. Our local group, though small, includes survivors of WWII in Germany, veterans of the Civil RIghts era, pacifists, preachers, students, and international peace delegates. We charge no dues and have monthly meetings to discuss and work on issues related to peace and nonviolence.

ABOUT FELLOWSHIP OF RECONCILIATION (F.O.R.)

Started in 1914 as an ecumenical organization seeking to prevent the outbreak of war in Europe, F.O.R. has grown to become the largest interfaith and international peace group in the world. F.O.R. includes Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Muslims, and people of other faith traditions, as well as those with no formal religious affiliation. Over the years F.O.R. lead in organizing the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), National (U.S.) Conference on Christian and Jews, helped sponsor the "freedom rides" and the Montgomery boycott, the Nuclear Freeze Campaign, the Bosnian Student Project and has sponsored peace delegations in areas of international violence.

Our mission is "to replace violence, war, racism, and economic injustice with nonviolence, peace, and justice. We are an interfaith organization committed to active nonviolence as a transforming way of life and as a means of radical change. We educate, train, build coalitions, and engage in nonviolent and compassionate actions locally, nationally, and globally."
