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 one of the most populace sites in the US, and an important resource on the antiwar movement, student activism, 'depleted' uranium and other topics. Jenks authored virtually all of its web pages and multimedia content (photographs, audio, video, and pdf files. As the author and registered owner of that site, his purpose here is to preserve an important slice of the history of the grassroots peace movement in the US over the past decade. He is maintaining this historical archive as a service to the greater peace movement, and to the many friends of Traprock Peace Center. Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.

THIS SITE NO LONGER REFLECTS THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK OF TRAPROCK PEACE CENTER, which has reorganized its board and moved to Greenfield, Mass. To contact Traprock Peace Center, call 413-773-7427 or visit its site. Charles Jenks is posting new material to PeaceJournal.org, a multimedia blog and resource center.

The Peace Pilgrim - "We who work for peace must not falter. We must continue to pray for peace and to act for peace in whatever way we can, we must continue to speak for peace and to live the way of peace; to inspire others, we must continue to think of peace and to know that peace is possible." - Peace Pilgrim This site honors this great peacemaker (Traprock has created a peace panel of her as part of our Peacemakers Exhibit that tours schools) and provides a wonderful directory of lnks to peace groups.

Artists for Peace

Gooselove - i'm excited to be part of the wonderful group of people that enjoy folk poetry and endeavor in humanist missions.  the folks that gather at folk poetry celebrations are an awesome group of thinkers, activists, teachers and peace-makers from whom i've learned much about how to be the participant i wish to be; how to be the change i wish to see.  i'm grateful to offer celebrations to the community through folk poetry as an excuse to gather and exchange merriment and ideas.  ~ gooselove

[Traprock note: Gooselove is a very popular poet in Western Mass who has touched cords nationally. He was a featured poet at the Festival of Peace offered on April 5, 2003 by Washington, DC students and the Campus Antiwar Network.
