Blessed are those who make peace. Since Sojourners began in 1971, we have emphasized nonviolence, peace, and restorative justice to build up the reign of God. From early protest against the Vietnam War and anti-torture campaigns to addressing today’s issues of drone warfare, mass shootings, non-state armed conflicts, and nuclear weapons, our commitment to peacemaking and in-depth exploration into nonviolent responses to violence remains firm.

We are working toward a world like the prophet Isaiah envisioned — where swords are turned into plowshares and nations study war no more.

Our Work

Contact your senator and ask them Ratify the Arms Trade Treaty to protect the sacredness and dignity of every person by ensuring that the U.S. is committed to building secure peace and justice worldwide.
Around the world, Catholics are becoming a church committed to peace and nonviolence. And the Vatican is listening.
The work of the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative, born from the April 2016 Rome meeting, recognizes that most of the people with political power are not the victims of social violence. CNI is bringing the voice of grassroots Catholics in the majority of the world, who are the primary victims of social violence and war, into the ring.
