Dear friends,

Below are current Plowshare calendars.  We often have last minute events, though, so checking our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/PlowsharePeaceAndJusticeCenter/ is usually helpful.  As well, at the bottom of the page, is information about on-going projects, like our newspaper distributions.

PLEASE NOTE: We are shifting over to an online presence due to the Covid-19 plague.  Please join us there for now.
