Peace Action Camps
New Program! “Peace Action Camps!” This is a chance for veterans, youth, women and others to join together to learn to sail, learn the principles of non-violent direct action, participate in an action planned during the camp, and learn about nuclear issues today. It will be a lot of fun and you might be chosen for future crew!
Our first camp, from June 21 – 28 in San Francisco Bay was a huge success and bodes very well for future efforts. We had six participants (12 counting crew and shore support). Four were VFP members, three of whom came from Tucson. They were accompanied by two young adults who are both involved with the Tucson-based Nonviolence Legacy Project.
We are hoping to plan future camps in San Diego.
Speakers are available to talk with your group or the media about the Golden Rule and nuclear issues. Please call Helen Jaccard, 206-992-6364 to make arrangements.
