Oregon PSR organizes health professionals and public health advocates to reframe war, militarism and violence as public health crises. Working with partners, we influence public opinion and key decision makers to promote systemic change to promote health, justice, and peace.
Our Peace Program works for nuclear weapons disarmament, encourages Oregon's youth to consider their role in creating a peaceful future through our annual Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship, coordinates the annual Hiroshima and Nagasaki anniversary memorial event in Portland, advocates for legislation to prevent gun violence, and brings the voice of medicine and public health to peace issues. There are many opportunities for involvement in Oregon PSR's Peace Program. To learn more, including how to join our peace work group, contact Kelly Campbell, Executive Director.
