People For Peace
This page is dedicated to individuals who didn't wait for others to act but instead became engaged in their communities and often founded or joined grassroots groups to work passionately on issues that mattered to them - peace, social justice, human rights, the environment, and many others. These are our neighbors in the Lehigh Valley, local heroes in our midst who inspire us to act.
