Illinois Chapter


Who We Are

Illinois for a World BEYOND War (IWBW) is a statewide chapter of the global World BEYOND War movement, working nonviolently to end war and establish a just and sustainable peace. All of our members have signed World BEYOND War’s Declaration of Peace and are committed to its vision.

What We Envision

By offering ongoing peace education, countering the dominant pro-war media narrative, and making efforts to influence our elected officials to stop supporting and financing militarism and war, we strive to end war. Through growth and a wide membership base, we can be more effective and offer wider opportunities for actions that align with members’ interests, abilities, and locations. We can also ally with other Illinois groups committed to peace advocacy, activism, and action.

Did You Know?

The Pentagon has failed its annual audit for the sixth year in a row, according to the Defense Department’s chief financial officer.

So, what to do when the Pentagon can’t account for all the taxpayer money provided?

Of course, give the Generals and the Military Contractors more!

Stop this insanity!
