The KW Peace blog was set up in 2012 to provide a website for Eleanor Grant’s semi-regular e-mail messages listing events and news items of interest to the Kitchener-Waterloo peace and social justice community. In 2015 Emily Mininger of PeaceQuestKW organized a symposium for peace organizations, and a need for a web presence, mailing list and a coordinated calendar of events was identified. The KW Peace blog was chosen to host. Many thanks are due for the sponsorship by Educators for Justice and web host SOBAC Microcomputer Services. Thanks also to former hosts indieServe Networks and CCj/Clearline.
If you’d like to discuss issues of peace and social justice if you’re a coordinator of a peace or social justice organization in the Kitchener-Waterloo area please join our Groups Mailing List.
The peace and social justice groups of KWPeace get together every few months to meet for a potluck dinner and discuss upcoming events. You can read the minutes of past meetings.
