FOR: A second century of revolutionary nonviolence and peacemaking

Founded in 1915, the Fellowship of Reconciliation recently stepped into our second century of training, organizing, and growing an interfaith movement for revolutionary nonviolence. In this 21st century moment, we are proud to highlight some of the voices and figures who have helped shape FOR’s first 100 years and the radical social change work we are involved with today. From FOR’s pacifist roots during World War I that established the framework of conscientious objection to our efforts resisting the Cold War, from Central American solidarity to Middle East peacemaking, from Dai Dong to the Bosnian Student Project to the Movement for Black Lives and police accountability, FOR continues to welcomes all people of conscience to end structures of violence and war, and create peace through the transformative power of nonviolence.
