CEASE is a network of parents, teachers and other concerned individuals who are dedicated to creating a safe world for our children. We seek to end the violence that permeates our society to an ever increasing degree and to remove the root causes of this violence by advocating for peace, justice, and economic opportunity.

We are committed to: raising public awareness about both the effects of violence and injustice upon children, families, and communities; eliminating the acceptance of violence which is created by mass media conditioning; ensuring the abolition of nuclear weaponry, other weapons of mass destruction, and the end to the proliferation of conventional weapons; and putting a stop to the dangerous degradation of our natural environment by supporting the development and use of reusable, non-polluting resources that protect the health and safety of the future generations. Central to the solution of these problems is the rededication of the national priorities and funding from the military and corporate interests to human services and environmental preservation.

We work toward these goals through the following activities: providing a supportive network for teachers and parents who share our concerns; educating the early childhood community through the publication of CEASE NEWS, creating periodical informational fliers, giving workshops and developing peace education materials; advocating for a government that is committed to improving and expanding quality child care and child development programs; and fostering a society that focuses on the well being of young children and their families through all our work.
