You're part of a strong and independent online force for peace -- and the need for it is only growing!

Click here to watch a two-and-a-half-minute video message from RootsAction's David Swanson and Matthew Hoh on why and how we struggle to reduce and end war making.
RootsAction works to oppose wars and militarism in a consistent, non-partisan way that very few other online groups do not. We were a big part of building public pressure to prevent a massive bombing campaign on Syria in 2013 and in upholding the Iranian nuclear agreement in 2015.
We educate about war and its impacts and expenses, making military reduction part of our demands around public spending. We've successfully lobbied to remove a military entertainment program from television and to compel the Congressional Research Service to resume reporting on weapons shipments.
RootsAction advances positive solutions of disarmament, aid, and diplomacy, as wiser alternatives to yet more counter-productive, immoral, and illegal warfare.
Please take a two-and-a-half minutes to watch the video and help us continue to gain strength!
We can only do this work with your help. Click here to see the video and to donate $3 or more toward RootsAction's upcoming campaigns to achieve peace.
Most of the struggles mentioned above are ongoing. They will continue through and long beyond this year's election season.
RootsAction is well-positioned to take on these challenges. We've had successes in promoting progressive solutions to problems at the state level, as well as in Washington, D.C.
