November 5, 2007: This website is an archive of the former website, traprockpeace.org, which was created 10 years ago by Charles Jenks. It became one of the most populace sites in the US, and an important resource on the antiwar movement, student activism, 'depleted' uranium and other topics. Jenks authored virtually all of its web pages and multimedia content (photographs, audio, video, and pdf files. As the author and registered owner of that site, his purpose here 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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.THIS SITE NO LONGER REFLECTS THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK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 PeaceJournal.org, a multimedia blog and resource center.
Celebrating "2000 - A year of Education for Nonviolence"
(Click on thumbnail for picture!)
Schools have long taught the history of war...now the history of
peace? In celebration of the year 2000 and Traprock Peace Center's 20th
anniversary we offer an education resource to area school libraries. This Peacemakers Exhibit features
inspired quotations, brief bios, and photographs of four local and seven
international peacemakers, including:
Frances Crowe Wally & Juanita Nelson
David Detmold Sarah Pirtle
(these four local peacemakers are pictured above)
Mohandas Gandhi Martin Luther King
Henry David Thoreau Peace Pilgrim,
Dorothy Day Nelson Mandela
Iqbal Masih. Sadako Sasaki
and Jeannette Rankin
Panels framed in cherry will hang at
11 school libraries in a month-long rotation, after some one-day showings.
The entire exhibit opened at the Greenfield, MA public library, and has been shown at Mt. Toby Meeting in Leverett, First Churches in Northampton (on Martin Luther King's birthday) and the Lighthouse Charter School in Orleans, MA. Communities are invited to contribute stories, creative writing and research to the peace resources that will accompany each panel. Eleven frames await further research. Who would you nominate as a peacemaker? Your contributions will help build a culture of peace.
Thanks to the Greenfield Recorder for the
