The National Campaign for a Peace Tax Fund (NCPTF) is a nonprofit advocacy organization working to pass legislation that would establish a way for conscientious objectors to channel their taxes into nonmilitary purposes.
Components of the Campaign include a professional lobbyist, activist networks, a newsletter, and other publications. Associated with the Campaign is the Peace Tax Foundation, whose purpose is educating the public about conscientious objection.
New York Yearly Meeting is recognized by the Board of Directors of the National Campaign for a Peace Tax Fund for our endorsement and support of the Campaign and is asked to send a representative ex officio to the board.
