The American Friends Service Committee works to help people directly, but also works for systemic change to create peace and justice. AFSC is brave and works on many unpopular causes to protect the marginalized (like the Japanese internees in WWII, gays and lesbians in the 70s, forgotten coal miners facing unsafe conditions), but over time the society catches up with them. They have their eye toward the long-term, sustainable change. AFSC works on a number of issues with people in the US and around the world and connects them to expand our horizons so we all can see the potential for peace.
