Oregon PeaceWorks' Office Is Now Closed, But...
Here's the new situation:
Thanks to extraordinary generosity on the part of our partners, supporters and friends, our debt has been paid off and salaries owed to staff have been paid.
Salem Weekly (Salem's progressive newspaper) has rented our former space and Peter Bergel, our former Program Director and past Executive Director, is renting his old office from them. From that office he plans to carry on the kind of work OPW was doing with special emphasis on climate change issues and how they relate to peace and efforts that promote societal paradigm shifts.
This website will continue and will be used to report on the kind of work OPW has done.
The PeaceWorker has resumed publishing on the web at www.peaceworker.org, thanks to the volunteer help of Paul Suter.
OPW's Facebook page continues to be updated several times a week.
Dr. Atomic's Medicine Show will continue to present its hilarious political satire and may be booked by contacting Peter Bergel at pbergel(at)igc.org or by calling 503-371-8002.
Peter Bergel will continue to present his hootenannies (sing alongs) entitled "Music for Social Change" in which he leads group participation in songs associated with social change movements of the past. He also comments briefly on the history of these movements and shares stories of his participation in some of them. Book "Music for Social Change" by contacting him (see above).
