Who We AreWin Without War is a diverse network of activists and organizations working for a more peaceful, progressive U.S. foreign policy.We believe that by democratizing U.S. foreign policy and providing progressive alternatives, we can achieve more peaceful, just, and common sense policies that ensure that all people — regardless of race, nationality, gender, religion, or economic status — can find and take advantage of opportunity equally and feel secure.The Win Without War network is composed of organizations representing a diverse and inclusive movement to radically shift United States foreign policy away from a violence-first approach. We want our team to include leaders who recognize the communities and movements our policies impact and reflect the diversity of the United States.
