Mennonite Church to Operate a War Tax Redirection Fund

When the Mennonite Church USA met in its biennial conference , one of the items on the agenda was a proposal by Mennonite war tax resisters Harold Penner and John Stoner to revitalize and extend a war tax resisters’ alternative fund operated by the Church.

That proposal was approved. The new “Church Peace Tax Fund” will enable Mennonite war tax resisters to redirect their taxes into a fund that will support conscientious objectors, peace education and action, and programs that work for the common good.
