Power to the polls! That was the theme of the January Women’s March in Lansing. We marched for justice and demonstrated that women have power, and we’ll exercise it at this year’s elections. On Monday, February 19, we’re gathering to write postcards to our elected officials, speak out on issues important to us, and socialize. Bring your friends and make new ones! We’ll bring pizza, beverages, postcards, and stamps.

Join us for a day of reflection on Peace in our homes, our city, our state, our country, our World. The Megiddo Peace Table is situated in the Peace Center and may we gather around it to listen and share all our hopes for Peace in the World. Join us! Light refreshments. Tel: 313 963-7575 Therefore....Let's have a dialogue about the future of the local peace movement. How effective are we? Of the tactics we use, what works and what doesn't? How can we encourage more people to join our organizations or at least participate in events? Which messages get people interested in peace? How can our organizations work together to project our aims and goals to the public? These are only a few questions to consider. Bring your own questions and ideas to the peace table. Let's have an honest conversation about moving the peace agenda forward. We hope you can participate and that you will extend the invitation to others whom you would like to see and hear in such a discussion.

Here’s your summer read! We invite you to read On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century by Timothy Synder. Join us at Swords into Plowshares on Sunday, August 6 at 2:00 p.m. for a discussion of this provocative little book. This short book offers twenty pithy, often sobering, suggestions based on the happenings in the 20th century. Here are two quotes from the Prologue: “History does not repeat, but it does instruct.” “History can familiarize and it can warn.”
