Mission Statement
Our mission is to actively promote and encourage democratic, multi-racial and non-violent decisions in all aspects of our nation's domestic and foreign policy.

We join progressive individuals and organizations across the Cape, and seek to extend this cooperative alliance. By connecting, we learn from each other, help each other, and increase our effectiveness. Awareness, education and non-violent action are the tools we use to better understand and confront our nation's dominant institutions and powers.

We challenge global corporate capital in the promulgation of war, environmental destruction and impoverishment, and seek peace, freedom, justice, democracy, and respect for the rights and security of all people, as well as the earth's living environment.

The Pledge of Resistance

We believe that as people living
in the United States it is our
responsibility to resist the injustices
done by our government, in our names

Not in our name
will you wage endless war
There can be no more deaths
no more transfusions of blood for oil

Not in our name
will you invade countries
bomb civilians, kill more children
letting history take its course
over the graves of the nameless

Not in our name
will you erode the very freedoms
you have claimed to fight for

Not by our hands
will we supply weapons and funding
for the annihilation of families
on foreign soil

Not by our mouths
will we let fear silence us

Not by our hearts
will we allow whole peoples
or countries to be deemed evil

Not by our will
and Not in our name

We pledge resistance
We pledge alliance with those
who have come under attack
for voicing opposition to the war
or for their religion or ethnicity

We pledge to make common cause
with the people of the world
to bring about justice freedom and peace
Another world is possible
and we pledge to make it real
