Nonviolence and peacemaking
Today John Lennon would be 75 and the radio played his song Power to the People. Earlier this week a couple thousand people made a peace sign in New York's Central Park in response to Yoko Ono's call to honor John's birthday in this way.

A note from the planning committee:
A forum sponsored by United for Justice with Peace
As we grieve the devastating impact of the Marathon bombings had on many families and communities in the Boston area, we are also aware of the need to examine the impact of those bombings on peace and justice issues in our communities, campaigns and organizing.
Presentations will provide analysis and ideas for response from the anti-war, immigrants’ rights, civil liberties, anti-war, economic justice, and Muslim communities.

Memorial March for Peace
A group of Boston area peace activists met on Tuesday to share what we know about Monday's bombings and to discern how best to respond to the deadly attack against our community and against people from across the nation and around the world who came to Boston to participate and enjoy the Marathon.
Led by Cathy Hoffman and Ken Butigan, a weekend nonviolence training session was held in Cambridge for Campaign Nonviolence (http://paceebene.org/campaign-nonviolence).
The training brought local peace activists together with folks from Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Worcester and Dighton, MA and one stalwart life-long activist from Baltimore, Maryland.
