Sharing Space, Building Power
“There is no way to peace — peace is the way”

This was A.J. Muste’s simple statement of his convictions.

A.J. Muste was a pacifist, anti-war activist and a leader of the labor and civil rights movements whose personal integrity won him a rare universal respect.

The A.J. Muste Memorial Institute was organized in 1974 to keep A.J.’s legacy alive through ongoing support of the nonviolent movement for social change.

The Institute publishes pamphlets and books on nonviolence, provides grants and sponsorships to grassroots groups throughout the U.S. and the world, and provides office space to social justice organizations at our New York City “Peace Pentagon.”

We invite you to join us in a quest for a better future.
