Eugene Peace Works has been an active presence in the Eugene community since its founding in 1981. For twenty-five years, EPW has been promoting local and international cooperation in the Peace and Justice Movement. EPW supports a commitment to world peace, social and environmental justice issues through nonviolent grassroots action, education and mutual empowerment to show that peace works. EPW provides office space and community organizing resources to community members, promotes nonviolent strategies for direct action, and campaigns against militarism and its use to preserve and promote other institutions of social and environmental oppression. Whether helping to make Eugene a nuclear-free zone or fighting to end corporate greed, EPW has and will continue to work for justice locally and abroad.
