Why do the LIPW board members get involved, and stay committed to the peace minded work we do?

From Board Secretary, Malinda Harnish Clatterbuck:

With the knock on my door by a gas industry operative, my life changed from reading and writing about peace to moving in the world and organizing in a way that educates others and taking personal steps toward fighting for justice, which brings peace to more people.

LIPW is a non-profit that is dedicated to working for justice in a way that inspires me to do the same. I am humbled by working with such a variety of involved people of integrity.

My immediate work pushes agains corporate exploitations of groups of people who have become sacrifice zones for the sake of corporate greed, and pushes agains a government that condones such behaviors of bullying, intimidation, and destruction of community rights.

My grounding in the beauty of the earth, and our reliance on her life, spur in me a development of my own spirituality and hope in greater nurturing of the earth, and less exploitation of her.
