Welcome to Plowshare

Plowshare Peace & Justice Center has been a community resource for activists in Roanoke since 1973, working on issues of peace and justice. 

Please explore our website to get to know us a little bit. Be sure to check the Committees and Coordinators page to learn more about our activities, as well as the Events page to see what’s upcoming. 

You are invited to come to a peace vigil, a death penalty vigil, a climate change vigil, a lobbying visit, a demonstration, a workshop, a program, or the many other opportunities to be heard that we offer. You are also invited to participate on our committees, perhaps even join our board of directors if so inclined. Click here for: How to Get Involved in Plowshare.

Plowshare is a non-profit, volunteer organization. Again, our goal is to educate, encourage, and collaborate for peace and justice for all beings. We are secular, not sectarian, and we mean it when we say every voice matters. We welcome newcomers and encourage your input, big or small.
