The Colombe Foundation is a grant-making arm of the Proteus Fund. It is a peace advocacy group that works to make changes in American policy.
It wants to eliminate weapons of mass destruction, a shift to foreign policy that is balanced with diplomacy and prevention rather than dominated by war and aggression, and a shift from wasteful military spending to investments in programs that create real national security including environmental protection, alternative energy, education and human services.
Its mission is addressed through grassroots organizations working to educate the public and influence decision makers, peace advocacy organizations promoting alternative policies and educating opinion makers and decision-makers, and organizations initiating and expanding media coverage on our issues.
