What is The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation?

Since 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.
