We are a grassroots organization made up of individuals from Rhode Island’s East Bay area that are committed to peaceful solutions to conflict and to social and economic justice through the promotion of open, respectful dialogue. We strive to accomplish these goals through public forums on topics relevant to our mission, publication of position papers and community activism. We also seek to promote changes in U.S. policy by lobbying our representatives in Washington DC on issues of concern. EBCP operates by consensus and does not as a group subscribe to any one political ideology or party.
EBCP holds ongoing peace vigils on the second Saturday of every month from 11 AM to noon outside the Bristol Post Office. Please join us.
On Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 7 PM, join us for a virtual viewing and discussion of a shortened version of the documentary The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel's Public Relations with the United States. The film explores the many narratives surrounding Israel and Palestine, focusing on those generated with the intention to foment support for violence, occupation and militarism by the Israeli government at the expense of the Palestinian people. Sponsored by East Bay Citizens for Peace, Brown Students for Justice in Palestine, and Brown War Watch; the film is presented by the Media Education Foundation. Register for free for the event here.
EBCP endorses Move To Amend, a national movement to amend our Constitution to establish that money is not free speech and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to consitutional rights.
