Working Groups

Massachusetts Peace Action does much of its work through several working groups.

Working groups are volunteer-driven.  They typically meet monthly; members can often dial-in by phone if they are far from our Cambridge office.

Attend a working group meeting, or contact the people listed below to talk about how you can get involved.

If your issue is not listed here, start a new group — we’ll help!
