Historical Background
The Episcopal Peace Fellowship (EPF), was founded November 1939 as the Episcopal Pacifist Fellowship, an association of pacifist members of the Protestant Episcopal Church. The organization sought to discover and unite pacifists within the church and to influence its membership regarding Christianity and peace. The basis for affiliation was gradually broadened to include "those working for reconciliation" who were not necessarily absolute pacifists; thus the name was changed in 1966 to Episcopal Peace Fellowship. The organization has sponsored educational projects (publications, lectures, workshops, conferences), provided counseling and financial support for conscientious objectors, and has contributed to pacifist projects in other countries. The EPF has been affiliated with the Fellowship of Reconciliation since 1939. John Nevin Sayre was one of the founding members of the organization.
