Summary describing your organization:: Our work started in 2004 when representatives from Veterans for Peace, Catholic Peace Fellowship, Joy Mennonite Church and the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) came together to support conscientious objectors. We soon took on other antiwar projects and were known as the Oklahoma Center for Conscience until in 2013 we changed our name to the Center for Conscience in Action. In 2011 we became the Oklahoma state affiliate for the War Resisters League. We have long-standing working relationships with national organizations, including the Military Law Task Force of the National Lawyers Guild, the GI Rights Network, the Private Manning Support Network, among others. In Central Oklahoma we frequently join with The Oklahoma City Peace House to plan actions and advocacy campaigns. In 2012, we helped establish the central Oklahoma coalition group Americans Against the Next War, which organizes demonstrations, letter-writing campaigns and publishes op-eds in local and national outlets to educated the public about the need for diplomacy and mutual cooperation rather than war.
