What We Do Strengthen, build & demilitarize.

Nonviolent direct action in Minneapolis organized by FOR Staff and National Council photo by Rebecca Lawrence

Strategic nonviolent movements are one of the most potent forces in the world. They oust dictators, change policy and realize the hopes of communities. For over 100 years FOR has strengthened the movements that reshape society through our work in Black Lives Matter, training in Nonviolent Civil Disobedience, training in Jail Support and Fiscal Sponsorship.

Building Healthy Communities

Relationships established through strong communities are the glue of our work. We ground ourselves in relationships of accountability and a spirituality that spans faith traditions. We help build communities that reflect our vision of Beloved Community through our Chapters, Networks & Affiliates, Interreligious Engagement & Understanding, Intentional Communities and Retreats for Movement Leaders & Activists.

Demilitarized Tanks

We see nonviolence as a way of life, a moral commitment, and a social tool. As a branch of IFOR's international network we work with partners around the world to end militarism in all of its forms, working through the International Fellowship of Reconciliation, United Nations Advocacy, Demilitarizing Communities, Boycott Divestment and Sanctions, Anti-drone Initiatives and #GiveRefugeesRest.

Your donation toward the light

by Linda Kelly

As 2016 comes to a close, we stand at the precipice of what may be a future fraught with tests of our conviction that only light can drive out darkness.

With anticipation of great challenges ahead, we're sure that we will stand strong together.

The Fellowship of Reconciliation will continue to walk the path toward justice, and we will hold fast to our beliefs in the transformative power of nonviolence and the ability to make real change with grassroots nonviolent direct action.

But we need your help. Make your year-end, tax-deductible donation to FOR now.

We have some exciting ways to say thanks!

For a donation of just $10, we'll send you a vintage Fellowship of Reconciliation lapel pin. These are great conversation-starters that will show your support for peace and justice in 2017!

For a donation of $100, we have something really special for you.
The first 100 people to make a donation at this level will receive a copy of
MARCH: Book Three, autographed by Rep. John Lewis! This graphic novel, a 2016 National Book Award winner, tells the story of the Black-led freedom struggle in the United States, and Rep. Lewis' role in it. The book will also be signed by co-author Andrew Aydin and the novel's artist, Nate Powell.

And that's not all:

Donations of $35 or more will get you a surprise set of three vintage cards from our peace collection. Send peace in the new year! 

For donations of $75 or more, you'll recieve our popular Walter Wink pamphlet, "Homosexuality and the Bible."

And if you donate $200, you'll get the full set of MARCH books by Rep. John Lewis -- parts one, two and three. If you're among the first 100 donors, book three will be signed by the authors!

Be sure to note your gift of choice in the message box on the donation page.

Will you take a moment to make a contribution toward justice and reconciliation in 2017? This is one of the most important moments in our lifetimes, and we can't slow down now.

Please made a tax-deductible, year-end donation to FOR today!
