Peace & Justice

Help build a peaceful village.  One that is marked by healed interpersonal or social relationships.  Prosperity, equality, and a working political order.   And respectful cultural and economic relationships.

    Well, we all know Illinois needs political reform - busted budgets, scandals, cronyism, privatization schemes hit home and our pocketbooks.
    Find out what the reform group in Illinois is doing to help end the culture of corruption in our state.

    “Try it, you’ll like it! “ Develop strategies to increase the use of TimeBanking:  It’s time for us to use the many wonderful assets of all residents, increasing sharing of unmet needs and unused resources.  A time bank can help us do that.  

    A time bank is a tool that matches individuals who have something to share (which is everyone) with individuals and organizations that have needs. 

    Join us to explore the assets and needs in OPRF that can be matched through TimeBanking and encourage residents to try it.

    Second Status Review: Saturday Morning IP/WP

              Before drafting this status review I checked the first one that I sent out and was surprised to find that it is already a little over a year ago that I did that, 12/8/12 to be specific.  At that time we were averaging about a half dozen in attendance.  Now we are down to half of that and David Kelm, Cindy Palombi and I, who discussed this at  our January 4th meeting, are wondering whether it is time to either bring these...
