COFP is an active and visible presence in Central Ohio and elsewhere. With the help of the Columbus Unitarian-Universalist and Mennonite Churches, COFP sent 383 School Kits to Iraq. Relief Kits were also sent. In addition, COFP contributed to a Heifer International Project, and sent a response letter to a Green Peace group in Dresden, Germany.

COFP also cooperates with other local and national groups, including the National Network to End the War against Iraq and the Central Ohio Peace Network.

COFP has produced a "Candidate's Peace Policy Survey;" "Open the Door to Peace" Door Hangers; Three Large "Central Ohioans for Peace" Banners; "Central Ohioans for Peace" T-Shirts; and created the Document: "Organizing for Peace, Prosperity, and Democracy (Facilitating Peace by Restoring Democracy)."
