' Peace Center of Delaware County

"Be a patriot. Set a good example of what America means for the generations to come. They will need it....A nationalist encourages us to be our worst, and then tells us that we are the best. A patriot, in contrast, wants the nation to live up to its ideals, which means asking us to be our best selves...A nationalist will say that "it can't happen here" which is the first step toward disaster. A patriot says that it could happen here, but that we will stop it. "
Timothy Snyder

The Peace Center of Delaware County>

"An important part of activism is that you actually have a hometown, or a neighborhood, that you are a part of." Pete Seeger, Journal for living, No. 26

The Peace Center of Delaware County is a gathering and community place for  planning, dreaming, and living Peace. 

The role of the Peace Center is to help build a peace and justice community in Delaware County that serves the needs of local activist organizations, families and individuals seeking to integrate peacemaking into their lives; and congregations, organizations, and individuals to link the search for spiritual peace with the movement for peace on earth.

The Peace Center is a place to share meals, conduct meetings, sponsor educational forums, celebrate and party, recite poetry, dance, sing, build, and make peace.The Peace Center is also an incubator for ideas on how to strengthen the peace and justice movement, function collectively, provide training for activism, secure and store important tools, and develop a peace and justice movement that promotes racial, religious, and cultural diversity.

The Peace Center is under the care of the Chester Quarterly Meeting of Friends. It operates within the physical space of the Springfield Friends Meeting. A Steering Committee, comprised of local members of the Society of Friends and local peace and justice activists, is responsible for the fiscal and program operation of the Peace Center.

Sue Gordon and Paul Sheldon are co-clerks of the steering committee of the Peace Center of Delaware County, and Robert M. Smith is its program organizer. They may be contacted at 484-574-1148.
