Today in 1915: The U.S. branch of the International Fellowship of Reconciliation, or FOR, was founded.
FOR’s Mission Statement reads: “The Fellowship of Reconciliation seeks to replace violence, war, racism and economic injustice with nonviolence, peace and justice. We are an interfaith organization committed to active nonviolence as a transforming way of life and as a means of radical change. We educate, train, build coalitions, and engage in nonviolent and compassionate actions locally, nationally, and globally.”
