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. The spring Youth Peace Jam brings youth together for a day of peace, justice, empowerment and art workshops.  Conflict resolution and communication programs identify areas of need personally and in the community.  Visits to legislators on current political issues develop relationships with government.  You are invited to participate.
