The principal goals of Texans for Peace are:

  • To provide curriculum and teacher training materials for school nonviolence throughout the state
  • To represent Texas throughout the U.S. and the world as "peace ambassadors"
  • To develop resources and capacity to grow peace and justice organizations in Texas."[1]

Texans for Peace, as a peace and social justice organization, is involved in a variety of issues ranging from immigrant rights to environmental justice. Much of its activities in recent years have been to build support to end the war in Iraq.
