Friends of Peace is gathering signatures on petitions -- paper and online -- towards the goal of presenting them to local elected officials. Because our members come from number of different municipalities in McLennan County, we chose to address our petitions to the county commission as well as any cities that we can.

Please sign the online petition, or if you would like to get some of the hard-copy petitions and collect signatures in person, email us and we'll get some to you. For more info about impeachment and the grassroots campaign to pass resolutions in cities accross the country, see articlesofimpeachment.net.

Join our low-volume announcement/newsletter list to keep up with our activities in the Waco area.

Voting rights? Blacks want to know where they went

A guest editorial by Friends of Peace member Charles Reed was published today in the Waco Tribune. Charles did what many have been unable to do: get information about the voting irregularities in Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004 in a mainstream media outlet.
