Four pro-active sites:
* Campaign for UN Reform - The vision of the Campaign for United Nations Reform is an effective, democratic, and accountable United Nations system able to fulfill the goals set forth in the preamble of its Charter. The mission of the Campaign for United Nations Reform is to build political will within the United States to promote a more democratic, accountable, and transparent U.N. system; and to increase the resources and authority needed by the U.N. system to achieve the goals set forth in its Charter.
CUNR's Iraq page carries working pages such as "Iraq Briefing Book" (This is a website resource put together for members of Congress and the public by a diverse group of national and international religious, humanitarian, public interest and advocacy organizations, including CUNR, who are working to promote effective policies on Iraq.). and documents such as "What Now for International Law?" (March 19, 2003) and "Marching to Whose Drum? A Security Council Called into Question".
* Win Without War - A mainstream voice advocating alternatives to preemtive war.
* Fourth Freedom Forum: Exploring Options for the Nonviolent Resolution of International Conflict - The Bush administration is pursuing a war that never should have happened. Iraq was being disarmed through peaceful diplomatic means when the United States attacked. Unprovoked war against another country without the approval of the Security Council violates the UN Charter and is illegal under U.S. and international law.
* The Council for a Livable World, the Center for Arms Control & Non-Proliferation and PeacePAC focus on halting the spread of weapons of mass destruction, opposing a national missile defense system, cutting Pentagon waste and reducing excessive arms exports. The Council and PeacePAC are also political lobbies which endorse political candidates.
