About Our ChapterToronto for a World BEYOND War works to educate and mobilizing people to advocate for a world beyond war, one based on peace and demilitarization. We provide a platform for education, local activism and advocacy on issues and campaigns such as: implementing a fair and human foreign policy; rolling back Canadian contracts to US and NATO defense for weapons and machinery; cancelling the Toronto air(war) show; divesting our national and corporate funds from weapons; cancelling Canada’s planned purchase of its first armed military drones; solidarity with frontline struggles facing militarized violence; advocating for policies that reallocate war dollars to human and environmental needs; urging our elected officials to end support for NATO and the continuing illegal wars abroad; and much more. Learn more about some of the national campaigns we participate in here.
