Mission

 

We advocate the peaceful resolution of international conflicts and that this ideal become a cornerstone of U.S. foreign policy.

PHILOSOPHY:

The sanctity of life and the non-violent resolution of conflict are the guiding principles behind the Orange County Peace Coalition.

We believe that people of all nations have the right, through truly democratic processes, to determine their own destiny, free from military coercion. We acknowledge national defense as a critical element of nationhood. However, civil liberties and democratic rights must never be sacrificed. Constitutional and international laws must never be overridden or ignored.

We believe that questioning, criticism and dissent must be valued and protected. We believe that all persons detained or prosecuted should have the right of due process. These rights must be defended.

We will resist the machinery of war and repression. We make common cause with people of the world for peace, justice and freedom
