Conscience Education For Peace

Conscience: Taxes For Peace Not War works for a world where taxes are used to nurture peace, not pay for war.  We campaign for legislative change so that those with a conscientious objection to war can opt to have the entire military part of their taxes spent on peaceful purposes.

Conscience Education For Peace programme

We have developed a new education programme, Conscience Education For Peace, to complement and inform our campaigning work.  This programme is aimed at adults, members of the public and potential supporters.  It presents basic information around conscientious objection to military taxation, and related issues, in a clear, simple way.

We are very grateful to have received a grant from Quaker Peace & Social Witness for our education programme.

We are producing a series of factsheets, with topics including different aspects of conscientious objection to military service, conscientious objection to military taxation, and non-military security.  For links to the factsheets we have completed so far, and a list of topics for future factsheets, please see Our programme.
