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 make these commitments are welcomed and encouraged to join the Activist Council: 

  • Endorse PPF’s “What We Believe” statement
  • Be active in the life of PPF
  • Support PPF financially to whatever degree you are called and able

Activist Council members lead and participate in nonviolent actions and demonstrations, set the priorities of PPF, and elect the members to serve on the Executive Committee. The AC meets two times per year for learning and action together. 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:

  • Creation Justice (Fossil Free PCUSA)
  • Development Committee
  • Endowment Committee
  • Gun Violence Prevention
  • Peace Churches
  • Presbyterians for Abolition
