Our History

PeaceWorks Kansas City began in 1982 as the Nuclear Weapons Freeze committee of the Kansas City Interfaith Peace Alliance and became the Kansas City Nuclear Weapons Freeze Coalition, the metropolitan area's leading voice against the nuclear arms race. Our name evolved to PeaceWorks, Inc. in 1990 and PeaceWorks, Kansas City in 1996. We have continued to educate ourselves and our leaders on the need for less government spending of tax money on weapons.
