PEACE TAX FUND ENDORSERS

 

"War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today."

--John F. Kennedy

 

Group Endorsers of the Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund Bill

 

A C O M T and the Campaign greatly appreciate the support of all of these organizations and individuals.  If your organization is not listed here and would be interested in supporting the Campaign, please contact A C O M T at (512) 467-2946 or peacetax_tx[at]yahoo.com or the Campaign at (888) PEACE-TAX (732-2382).  Thanks! Also, over 1,000 Central Texans have signed petitions or written letters for the Peace Tax Fund.  They have been delivered to Congress over the last couple of years, but officials need to hear more voices for peace and the rights of conscience!  Please write Congress including both US senators by going to the NEW page.  If you have the free Adobe Acrobat software, you can download a petition at which should be mailed to A C O M T once full (see the contact page).
