Peace Without Pita

Record #:
In Kannapolis, NC the Piedmont Peace Project is recognized nationally as a model for groups who want to form tight-knit, multiracial peace coalitions. Made up of farmers, truckers, millhands, and other blue collar individuals, the group got its start registering voters and petitioning for more social programs in local area. With the Persian Gulf War underway and many community members affected by the war, their focus has shifted to lobbying for peace. They have made an impact through community organizing and their non-confrontational approach to lobbying.
