Tulsa Peace Fellowship

There never was a good war or a bad peace. ~Ben Franklin

Tulsa Peace Fellowship is an advocacy group which has united to

break the endless cycle of violence and retaliation

engineered by war. By conscientiously exploring peaceful

options and just solutions, we hope to spare the lives of more innocent

people affected by violence throughout the world.

The Tulsa Peace Fellowship is the activist wing of the peace movement in Eastern Oklahoma.

Our slogan, borrowed from the AFSC, is: "Waging Peace One Person at a Time"

TPF offers citizens and community groups tools and resources to participate personally in our democracy, to help shape federal budget and policy priorities and to promote peace, social justice, economic justice, and human rights. 

The organization is intended to be a grassroots effort from the bottom up, governed by Steering Committee, operating by consensus as near as possible.

"Reduce military spending, Rebuild America!"

Tulsa Peace Fellowship's advocacy on behalf of peace will continue until this nation makes peace, social uplift, and nonviolence its priorities, rather than militarization.
We advocate for the return to a genuine time of peace, with reduced
military spending, in other words, the Peace Dividend.

Through its counter-recruitment task force, TPF is a member of the National Network Opposed to the Militarization of Youth (NNOMY) .

Subsidiary mission statement, for TPF counter-recruitment:

We work together with parents and students to counter the presence of military recruiters on school grounds, and instead of military enlistment, we promote peaceful
vocations for today's young people.

TPF is a registered non-profit civic-sector organization and a non-partisan group, loosely affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Restoration,
1314 N. Greenwood Ave, Tulsa (close to the corner of Pine Ave).

At our meeting last night, we decided to switch out our tagline/slogan.  The new one will be a quote from one of the country's Founding Fathers:

"There never was a good war or a bad peace."
