Arms Control and Militarism

The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in recent decades has motivated Episcopalians to work for bans, controls and reductions through advocacy with every Congress and Administration. Likewise, we have supported church partners in Japan, Korea, the Middle East and Central America who have sought to demilitarize their regions.

Working together for justice.
