Take Action

How You Can Help Build Global Action

There are many ways that individuals can support Global Action to Prevent War:

1. Become an individual supporter.

2. Permit us to include you on our mailing lists.

3. Persuade organizations of which you are a member to become organizational supporters of the GAPW program.

4. Join a GAPW working group or keep us posted on your activities and successes on behalf of one or more of our program components.

5. Disseminate information about the priorities of Global Action to Prevent War as widely as possible in your community and among your friends, relatives, colleagues, religious and political leaders, and other contacts. Working with other supporters, use public events, television programs, leafleting, petition campaigns, op-ed articles and letters to the editor, newsletters, and mailings to spread the need for phased disarmament and war prevention.

6. Strive to get governmental officials and business leaders behind efforts to promote disarmament and war prevention.

7. Reach out to organizations active on human rights, environmental affairs, or development to broaden the coalition concerned with peace and security issues.

9. Check our website www.globalactionpw.org (with extensive links to partner sites) for action-alerts on particular issues, local events and other news.

How Global Action Can Support Your Efforts

The Global Action coalition supports participating organizations in two ways: by giving support and visibility to existing efforts for war-prevention and disarmament, and spurring new initiatives that can enhance existing programs.

As a member of Global Action, you can:

1. Spread information about your programs to other organizations. We will help disseminate information about your goals, events, activities and priorities through the Global Action website (www.globalactionpw.org) and other venues.

2. Use GAPW working groups and forums to set priorities, launch initiatives, and debate issues.

3. Investigate the possibility of having our New York based Staff monitor UN meetings of interest and report on their outcomes, thereby assisting individuals and NGOs in other parts of the world to obtain timely and specific information on key UN-related issues.

4. Help shape the overall Global Action program, priorities, literature, and web site to make it more relevant to your own organization’s interests and priorities. The Global Action International Steering Committee regularly reviews proposals for additions and revisions to our general program. You are welcome to submit suggestions at any time (or tell us your success stories) via email to coordinator[at]globalactionpw.org.
