November 2, 2007: This website is maintained by Charles Jenks, who created it 10 years ago and has authored all of its web pages and nearly all of its multimedia content (photographs, audio, video, and pdf files). As the author and registered owner of this site, his purpose 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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.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, a multimedia blog and resource center.

Lead Stone Walk from Boston to NYC

"While politicians convene in Boston and New York this summer, family members of 9/11 victims will make a dramatic statement of solidarity with victims of terrorism, violence and war from around the world. From July 25 through September 2, they will walk from Boston to New York, pulling a 1400-pound granite memorial honoring the "Unknown Civilians Killed in War."" See full press release.

While at the Boston Social Forum, we were blessed with meeting up with friends from the Peace Abbey and Peaceful Tomorrows, who were joined by other friends - Catherine from Boston and Rae Street from the Campaign Against Depleted Uranium CADU (UK) and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. (CND).
