Adventist Peace Fellowship Launches New Website and Initiatives
The Adventist Peace Fellowship, a lay organized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to interfaith work for peace and social justice, has re-launched its website with expanded initiatives, tools, and resources.
The APF was founded in 2001 with a focus on questions of war and peace in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11. The organization’s work today encompasses peacemaking in the broadest and most holistic sense of the word, including concern for economic justice, human rights, freedom of conscience, and care for the environment.
With the launch of the new website, the APF introduces steps by which college and university students can organize their own APF Chapters and receive APF grants, as well as a certification process for congregations to become listed as official Adventist Peace Churches. The new site also features profiles of more than 60 Adventists or friends of Adventists who have made important contributions to public life through their activism, advocacy, scholarship, and service for peace and social justice.
