Upcoming Event(s)

Come listen to a panel discuss Rep. John Lewis (GA)’s national tax bill to allow people of conscience to pay their taxes to a designated peace fund. Should one be compelled to pay taxes to support war and weapons if you oppose war? How should people of conscience respond?

“The Newman Nonviolent Peacemaking Group has helped me understand and appreciate the power of Jesus’ message of nonviolence. It has reinforced my conviction that all humans are created in God’s image and deserve dignity and respect. I enjoy going to each event because they are unique, informative, and give me hope that we can overcome our problems not with weapons but with words.”
