Welcome to Plowshare – working for peace & justice

Plowshare Peace Center is a not for profit organization in Roanoke working to educate and collaborate with groups in the area for peace and justice for all beings.  You are invited to join  a monthly vigil, a committee meeting, or program.  Annual events include workshops, programs, parades, and more.
