PPF’s Activist Council

Our Activist Council members are the hands and feet of the PPF – the hands and feet in the world working for peace. Individuals and Organizations who commit to follow the nonviolent way of Jesus and be active in and contribute to the work of PPF are welcomed and encouraged to join the Activist Council.

Sign up here for individual membership and here for organizational membership.

Activist Council members lead and participate in nonviolent actions and demonstrations, set the priorities of the PPF, and elect the members to serve on the Executive Committee. We meet two times per year for learning and action together. Our most recent gathering was in September 2019 in Baltimore, MD. Join our newsletter for info about future gatherings.

“PPF is my church; I need the clear commitment to nonviolent action. It’s the combination of faith in love and the activism.”
– Anne Barstow, Activist Council member

AC members also participate in the working groups of PPF:

Accompaniment Consejo
Creation Justice (Fossil Free PCUSA)
Gun Violence Prevention
Peace Churches
Development Committee
Endowment Committee

​We hope you’ll join this important work! Once you have joined online, someone from our staff will contact you to learn more about your particular calling to peacemaking and see how we can connect you with others in PPF who are working on issues that you care about.
