NJ Peace Blog is the official blog for New Jersey Peace Action. The blog is a forum for thoughts related to our ongoing activism. We are dedicated to education about and continued discussion of:
- the dangers of nuclear weapons and work for nuclear disarmament and nuclear abolition
- the on-going wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, with particular focus on the billions of dollars spent on the wars instead of on social and community programs
- the erosion of civil liberties, focusing particularly on the importance of ending the U.S. use of torture
- military counter-recruitment, and working toward non-violent resolution of international conflicts
This blog will also include articles and posts in response to events both organized and co-sponsored by NJ Peace Action.
NJ Peace Blog also functions as a forum for reports from the grass roots. We encourage posts about local actions or local educational programs, complete with photographs and written stories.
The more we share, the more we inspire each other to continue working toward peace.
It is important for us to create our own media to compensate for the lack of coverage, and the bias, of the mainstream media. If you are interested in being a “roving reporter” for NJ Peace Blog, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help us write our way to peace.
