Due to the generosity of group members and their commitment to peace, we were able to run the following ad in the July 6, 2011 edition of the MetroTimes as a response to President Obama's recently announced Afghanistan plan. Full size ad (PDF).


HW Peace Joins Thousand Marching for Jobs, Justice & Peace in Detroit

HW Peace members were pleased to join thousands of other passionate community members for the recent Jobs, Justice and Peace march on August 28th in Detroit. Commemorating Reverend Martin Luther King's 1963 "Walk to Freedom" and delivery of his "I Have a Dream" speech, the march united local union members, social justice advocates and peace proponents in common cause for strong communities based on good jobs, equal justice and non-violent conflict resolution.

Juan Cole Talk on Afghanistan Conflict -- Informative and Well Attended
Over 270 attendees packed the Royal Oak First United Methodist Church on November 14 to learn more about Afghanistan, the country that has been the epicenter of the United States' fight against terrorism since the events of 9/11. Juan Cole, one of the foremost experts on America's troubled relations with the Islamic world, shed light on the varied ethnic population of Afghanistan and how our eight year occupation has so far succeeded in possibly recruiting more extremists than in securing our nation.
