About Our ChapterThe Upper Midwest chapter of World BEYOND War is a local chapter of the global World BEYOND War network, whose mission is the abolition of war. World BEYOND War’s work debunks the myths that war is inevitable, just, necessary, or beneficial. We outline the evidence that nonviolent methods are the most effective and lasting tools by which to resolve conflict. And we provide a blueprint for ending war, one that is rooted in the strategies of demilitarizing security, managing conflict nonviolently, and creating a culture of peace.
