The purpose of East Bay Peace Action is to accomplish the following through grassroots organizing within the diverse constituencies of Contra Costa and Alameda counties:
- Halt and reverse the arms race, nuclear and conventional, with a goal of a world free of nuclear weapons.
- Promote a peaceful foreign policy with respect for the political, social, and economic self-determination of all people.
- Reduce military spending, redirecting resources toward human needs and encouraging planned conversion from a military to a peacetime economy.
- Foster international understanding and an end to the cold war mentality that drives the arms race.
