Peace movement "refers to a sense of common purpose among organizations that seek to end wars and minimize inter-human violence, usually through pacifism, non-violent resistance, diplomacy, boycott, moral purchasing and demonstrating. The movement includes several international organizations, but more often describes a loose affiliation of activists and political interests that rally around a shared purpose," according to the Wikipedia.

A peace movement can take on many aspects, all of which are proactive -- anti-war rallies, demonstrations, marches, and protests, letter writing campaigns, blogging, and the vote, as exercised in the state of Vermont, March 3, 2005, to name a few.
