peace logo grassrootspeace.org

November 5, 2007: This website is an archive of the former website, traprockpeace.org, which was created 10 years ago by Charles Jenks. It became the most popular grassroots peace center site in the US with about 10,000 visitors a day by July, 2007. Its content remains an important resource on the grassroots peace movement, student activism, 'depleted' uranium and other topics. Jenks authored all of its web pages and virtually all multimedia content (photographs, audio and video). As the author and registered owner of that site, Jenks's purpose here is to preserve an important slice of grassroots peace history over the past decade. He is maintaining this historical archive as a service to the greater peace movement, and for Traprock's many friends. He is grateful for having worked with the Traprock community, and particularly with Sunny Miller. Without her supreme organizing, and her collaborations with Scott Ritter, Doug Rokke, Kathy Kelly, Bishop Gumbleton, and a host of local and national organizers and groups, that site would not have reached the heights that it achieved.THIS SITE DOES NOT REFLECT THE CURRENT WORK OF TRAPROCK CENTER FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE. Traprock reorganized its board and changed its name and mission, starting in late 2007. To contact Traprock Center for Peace and Justice, call 413-522-8892 or visit its site. Charles Jenks is posting new material to Peacejournal.org

Peace Poems

A wonderful time--the War:
when money rolled in
and blood rolled out.
But blood
was far away
from here--
Money was near.
- Langston Hughes, poet and novelist (1902-1967)
