1976 the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR) has been working
in the greater Thurston County area and beyond to create peace,
social justice and nonviolence locally and worldwide. We
organize at the grassroots and carry out a variety of activities to
inform and activate people. Specifically, the Olympia FOR
produces newsletters and TV programs, conducts weekly peace vigils,
and sponsors speakers, workshops and other events.
We are part of the Western Washington FOR (a regional FOR network),
the national FOR, and the International FOR. Nationally and internationally,
FOR was founded when World War I began and has opposed all
wars since then. More information is posted
in the menu below.
