Who We Are


Georgia Peace & Justice Coalition is a volunteer network of community, faith, and student organizations/individuals committed to global justice and peace. We have organized hundreds of street demonstrations, educational programs and lobbying campaigns calling for fundamental foreign policy change and invite you to take action with us! Since forming in 2002 to mobilize opposition to the Iraq invasion,we have developed into a strong voice for peace and justice. Today we continue working for complete withdrawal of U.S. troops and bases from Iraq and Afghanistan.
