Stairway in a Maryland park

Groups listed here provide a wealth of information and ideas. Some focus primarily on ending violence, others on alternatives to violence, and others on both. Many are led by people with deep experience in their fields.

Listing organizations here does not necessarily mean that we agree with all of their positions and programs--or that they agree with all of ours. Virtually all, though, offer important information. Unless otherwise indicated, they are based in the United States.

The groups are listed under their major issue focus, as follows: Consistency Advocates; Abortion; Death Penalty; Murder and Other Violent Crimes; Suicide and Euthanasia; Torture; and War.

Even if you work mainly on one issue, you may want to browse through groups that work on others. There are many connections among the issues, and people working on one may learn from those working on another.

This list was updated most recently in April, 2017.
