American Friends Service Committee in Vermont
The American Friends Service Committee is concerned with the world as it is and as it ought to be. Fundamental beliefs in the individual - seeing the Divine in each person - and in the need for peace and justice guide our activities. AFSC is dedicated to nonviolence:opposing both the overt violence of war and the covert violence that erodes the human spirit through deprivation and indifference. AFSC has an essential Quaker spirit, but its staff and partnerships include many who hold firm to other faiths. We work with individuals and communities to strengthen their ability for peace building, social and economic justice and to move from concern to action.
