Cost of War

Peace Action of San Mateo County



Welcome to Peace Action of San Mateo County - Here you will find a listing of our latest activities in organizing a citizen movement working toward the elimination of war and violence as acceptable means of resolving conflict at home and abroad. All action begins at a local level.


Here we seek to engage in public education, the active organization of demonstrations and protests,informing the media and lobbying our legislators toward the goals of ending the international arms trade, for significantly reducing worldwide military expenditures and implementing an effective program of economic conversion. We believe in a future where wealthy countries no longer profit from the suffering of others through an obscene arms trade. We believe in a future free from the constant threat of nuclear annihilation. We believe in a future where we no longer squander billions of dollars every year on unnecessary and menacing weapons.

And remember that a peace vigil happens every Saturday…here in San Mateo we will be at 3rd Avenue and El Camino Real (in front of the Bank of America Building) from 3-4 PM.

Come join us!
