East Bay Citizens For Peace


The East Bay Citizens for Peace (EBCP) is a grassroots organization made up of individuals from Rhode Island’s East Bay area that are committed to peaceful solutions to conflict and to social and economic justice through the promotion of open, respectful dialogue. We strive to accomplish these goals through public forums on topics relevant to our mission, publication of position papers and community activism. We also seek to promote changes in U.S. policy by lobbying our representatives in Washington DC on issues of concern. EBCP operates by consensus and does not as a group subscribe to any one political ideology or party.
