PDX Peace.org

This is an excellent site with good resources for war resistance including an initiative for Portland to oppose the war in Iraq.
About Us (cut and pasted from their website):

"We are an ad-hoc interfaith group in Portland, Oregon working for peace and nonviolence.

In the fall of 2002, we gathered to pursue faith-based nonviolence work in response to the current US government war agenda.

We organized an Interfaith Ad Campaign as an open letter to Senator's Wyden & Smith.

Our group is made of up members of many denominations and faith communities in the Portland, Oregon area - Buddhist, Catholic, Christian Science, Jewish, Mennonite, United Methodist, Muslim, Presbyterian, Quaker, United Church of Christ, and more..."

Some of the resources on this site are organized as follows:

| PRAY | ADVOCATE | BUILD PUBLIC SUPPORT | GET CONNECTED | KEEP INFORMED | CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTION | BUILD RELATIONSHIPS LOCALLY | WAR TAX RESITANCE | NONVIOLENCE TRAINING |
