Preventing and Resolving Conflict Through Nonviolence

MAY 2015

OUR WORK:

On April 29, PT members responded to a recent MTA Advertising Policy by saying:

“When we forge bridges, live together in interfaith understanding, and nonviolently prevent and resolve conflict – that is when we are successful in this battle and create the peaceful world that we envision as the only viable path to a sustainable future for ourselves and our children.”

Back in April several PT members met at the University of New Hampshire screening of In Our Son’s Name. More screenings are scheduled in Oregon for May 31 and June 1.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

MAY 25:

This year marks the 5oth anniversary of the landing of U.S. ground troops in Da Nang, Vietnam. Many consider this to be the beginning of the American War in Vietnam. To mark the 5oth anniversary of the war the Pentagon is undertaking a ten-year, $65 million campaign to rewrite and whitewash the history of the war in Southeast Asia.
In response, Veterans for Peace has announced the Vietnam War Full Disclosure Project to offer a more truthful history of the war. CLICK HERE to learn more.

DONATE NOW: Our peace greeting cards come with inspiring quotes. This one is by Howard Zinn:

“We don’t have to wait for some utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”

*****

From A Donor:

“Thank you, Peaceful Tomorrows, for doing the kind of work that our world needs! You are showing us the way to transform our country from being violent in its response to conflict, to a more peaceful way of building bridges.”
