Business Council for Peace
A group of volunteer business people in the U.S., Canada and Europe who apply their talents, time, and money to help women in war-torn regions build sustainable businesses. When women are stronger economically, they have a stronger voice for peace in their local communities and societies.
A women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the war in Iraq, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities. We reject fear-based politics that justify violence, and call for policies based on compassion, kindness and a commitment to international law. With an emphasis on joy and humor, we help activate, amplify and inspire a community of peacemakers through creative campaigns and a commitment to non-violence.
Initiative for Inclusive Security
We work for full participation of all stakeholders, especially women, in peace processes. Creating sustainable peace is achieved best by a diverse, citizen-driven approach. Of the many sectors of society currently excluded from peace processes, none is larger -- or more critical to success -- than women. We also include The Women Waging Peace Network, a global directory of leading activists.
Peace x Peace
We empower women as the most effective means to enrich lives locally and promote peace globally. We connect women’s “circles” in the U.S. with other "circles" around the world -- via the Internet -- for exchange of information and personal experiences that typically result in mutually supportive actions.
Women Stand With Iraq
We are a network of women sharing concerns and actions about Iraq. Our formation was inspired by participants who gathered to create positive, peaceful change at the
International Women's Peace Conference in Dallas, Texas July 12-15, 2007.
Women's Action for New Directions
We empower women to act politically to reduce violence and militarism, and redirect excessive military resources toward unmet human and environmental needs. We oppose nuclear weapons and the Iraq war. Our organization also includes a national nonpartisan network of women state legislators.
Women's International League for Peace and Freedom
Founded in 1915, with Jane Addams of Hull House as its first president. We work to achieve through peaceful means world disarmament, full rights for women, racial and economic justice, and an end to all forms of violence, and to establish those political, social, and psychological conditions which can assure peace, freedom, and justice for all. We envision a transformed world at peace.
Women's Learning Partnership for Rights, Development, and Peace
Our objectives are to increase the number of women taking on leadership and decision-making roles at family, community, and national levels, and to improve the effectiveness of feminist movements in Muslim-majority societies and globally by strengthening the capacity of our partner organizations.

Grandmothers for Peace
In most cultures around the world, grandmothers are revered as the “keepers of the peace.” We are inspired and motivated by that fact. Our work includes opposing -- nuclear weapons and power plants, the nuclearization and weaponization of space, global militarism that drains much needed resources from programs that enhance life, and the Iraq war -- along with other peace and justice issues.
We are totally non-violent, believe in only peaceful protest (with lots of laughter), work for "the many not the few," and see our work as the spreading green branches of a great tree, rising up to provide shelter and nourishment for those who will come after us. Grannies are best equipped to make public, corrupt things that have been hidden (often for profit), like nuclear and other toxic wastes and unjust wars.
1,000 grandmothers across America, to march onto the grounds of the School of the Americas (SOA, also called WHISC) with the SOAWatch annual demonstration, accepting arrest and imprisonment in an effort to shut down this training school for terrorism, with simultaneous actions around the country.
