Peacework has been published monthly since 1972, intended to serve as a source of dependable information to those who strive for peace and justice and are committed to furthering the nonviolent social change necessary to achieve them. Rooted in Quaker values and informed by AFSC experience and initiatives, Peacework offers a forum for organizers, fostering coalition-building and teaching the methods and strategies that work in the global and local community. Peacework seeks to serve as an incubator for social transformation, introducing a younger generation to a deeper analysis of problems and issues, reminding and re-inspiring long-term activists, encouraging the generations to listen to each other, and creating space for the voices of the disenfranchised.

Peacework offers news and analysis from the peace movement worldwide. Its perspective is based in respect for all people and a deep commitment to nonviolence. Peacework has always offered subscriptions to prisoners for a nominal $1 per year, and we are committed to continuing this outreach even as the number of subscribers in prison increases, and mailing costs rise.

For $15, you can subsidize one-year subscriptions to two of Peacework's many incarcerated subscribers. Make checks payable to AFSC-Peacework, and note in the memo line "Send Peacework to Prison." Your gift is tax-deductible, and should be sent to Peacework, AFSC, 2161 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge MA 02140.
