UNL Emeritus Professor

Nebraskans for Peace {dot} ORG

Welcome to our newly redesigned Web site. 

This new version of NebraskansforPeace.org is meant to enhance our efforts at community-building, education and political action in 2010. We will continue to focus on turning off the violence in our schools, working for peace and international law, exposing the threats of StratCom's offensive missions, organizing for civil rights and economic justice, and defending our environment. Our bi-monthly media publication, the Nebraska Report, will continue to be offered as a PDF to download and all of its content will be posted as Articles to share online.

As a statewide organization, we have also built into the site structure a place for local Chapters to thrive -- to work together and share what works. With 11 Chapters currently across the state, we feel providing a online resource will help them grow and be more successful in their own communities while working for the goals of Nebraskans for Peace.
