In the spring of 2006 a few Guilderland residents came together to form Guilderland Neighbors for Peace. We were inspired by other local peace organizations, such as Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace, Veterans For Peace, and Women Against War.
We number around 25 people thus far. Our only broad decision has been to be inclusive and to stress the positive goals of working toward peace and justice. We are in the process of developing our mission and programs, and we encourage other Guilderland residents to join us.
In addition to joining Upper Hudson Peace Action, we have merged with Guilderland Families for Peace, a behind-the-scenes group that has promoted peace and social justice for several years through its scholarships and grants for high school students and teachers.
We have a film series and show films of political interest at the library and other community spaces.
