Action Alert:

Working Groups

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

Working groups are volunteer-driven.  They had typically met monthly but many have started to meet more frequently during social distancing.  All are currently meeting by Zoom.

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!
