AFSC (American Friends Service Committee) New York, NY

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: February 21, 2013, 10:30 PM

Description

The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) is a Quaker organization that includes people of various faiths who are committed to social justice, peace, and humanitarian service. Its work is based on the Religious Society of Friends (Quaker) belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice.

Founded in 1917 to provide conscientious objectors with an opportunity to aid civilian victims during World War I, today the AFSC has programs that focus on issues related to economic justice, peace-building and demilitarization, social justice, and youth, in the United States, and in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Our New York/Newark offices are part of AFSC's Northeast Region. Our New York office is the home base for our Healing Justice Program. Our Newark Office (89 Market Street) hosts our Immigrant Rights Program and our Prison Watch program (that is part of our Healing Justice Program work).
