Review for VETERANS FOR PEACE INC - National Office, Saint Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband is the veteran and I'm his "Partner for Peace." The VFP helps us to be part of a group that can speak up for peace with authenticity because of their experiences with war. Thank you Veterans for Peace for all the witness you do for those of us who share your goal of peace. You are valued and we hope more Americans will hear your message.

Review for Peace X Peace, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

PeacexPeace came to my alma mater, Marygrove College, a few years ago where I was introduced to this dynamic organization. I live in a small community about an hour from Detroit so being able to connect on-line to women around the world who are interested in peace and justice and helping others was directly beneficial. PeacexPeace is open 24/7, no time spent commuting, no money on gasoline! In Feb 2009, I was able to visit the offices of PxP in Wash DC and introduced the Director of The Rebuilding Alliance, Donna Baranski-Walker to the staff.
I support TRA with their campaign: "I Care About Peace, I Care About Al Aqaba," and PeacexPeace supports me and others like me who have their own peace projects. We support one another.

With our US Gov't having 900 military bases around the world, it's wonderful having PeacexPeace at my fingertips with access to thousands of women around the world waging peace. Thank you, Patricia Smith Melton and Mary Liepold and all the other wonderful staff who inspire and support the work of peace and justice.

With much gratitude,
Mares Hirchert

I still find the website confusing and not user friendly for actual communication between the members of the same group.
