If you submitted a workshop, the Convention Committee will be in touch by July 12, 2022.

The 2022 Convention theme this year is “From War Making to Peace Seeking”  We are asking members to submit workshop applications focused on one or more of the following themes:

  • Demilitarization at home and abroad

  • Shifting spending priorities of militarism to human needs

  • Climate Impacts from War and Militarism

  • Building a culture of peace: Personal/Individual Transformation and/or Community Transformation


Priority will be given to workshops that have diverse and intergenerational panels reflective of coalition building and show examples of collaboration of VFP with other movements.


Complete applications will also be prioritized and incomplete applications will be returned for further work. 

The application deadline for workshops has been extended to July 8, 2022. Please make sure to submit your workshop as soon as possible as hosting workshops online requires a tremendous amount of preparation. 

Please also consider the following requirements when submitting:

  • Stable and fast internet

  • Web camera and up to date microphone

  • Ability to navigate and learn webinar technology

  • Engaging content that will keep online viewers interested


There are a limited number of workshop spaces available.  The Convention Committee will work with members whose workshops are not selected for presentation during the convention to host the workshops online separately throughout the year.

The deadline for submissions is now passed. Thank you to all who submitted a workshop!
