Thinking about enlisting in the military?

Military recruiters and ads promise a lot. Before you join, take a good look at what you're getting into.

History is cluttered with the wreckage of nations and individuals that pursed this self-defeating path of hate. We still have a choice today: nonviolent coexistence or violent co-annihilation. We must move past indecision to action. If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark, and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who posses power without compassion, might without morality, and strength without sight.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Riverside Church - April 4, 1967

09-21 demo

One of the events on the International Day of Peace, September 21, 2014,
brought together a variety of organizations on the Ped Mall in Iowa City
for a Campaign for Nonviolence.

Soul Fest Wheel

At Soul Fest, visitors could spin the large color wheel,
and depending on where on the wheel the pointer landed,
were asked to answer a specific question about nonviolence.
Answers were rewarded with a candy Kiss.

Johnson County Fair

At the Johnson County Fair in July, 2014,
PEACE Iowa and a coalition of other groups
presented the public with healthy and realistic alternatives to policies
that are not in the public interest.
