Nationally Prominent Advocate for Military Families Joins Peace House as Executive Director

Stacy Bannerman had a lengthy career in non-profit service before 2003, when her husband was first deployed to Iraq. It included directing the Martin Luther King, Jr. Family Outreach Center in Spokane, Washington. But it was the experience of serving on the home front of a war she felt morally wrong that led her to national prominence as an advocate for wounded veterans and their families.  Continue reading…

Uncle Foods Diner

Peace House has been the home of Uncle Foods Diner for nearly 33 years.  Every Tuesday at 4:30 pm, our team of volunteers, which is led by chef Maren, can be found at Ashland’s United Methodist Church, serving up scrumptious meals to the homeless, the hungry, the economically disadvantaged, and the working poor. Why are the lines at Uncle Foods Diner getting longer? Because military spending is now 54% of U.S. federal discretionary spending, according to the National Priorities Project. Read more about what would happen if we turned back the clock on military spending in peace activist/author David Swanson’s blog, http://warisacrime.org/content/if-us-military-spending-returned-2001-level just in time for Memorial Day.

From article Presidential Hopefuls “Mistaken” on Iraq by Stacy Bannerman  May 20, 2015 at Common Dreams “So when I hear the people who are setting their sights on being the next POTUS calling that war a mistake, I question whether they are qualified to become candidates. Because the war in Iraq was not a mistake. It was a betrayal of the public trust …” continue to full article.




Peace House spring fundraising appeal

We need 35 new donors—please be one


Uncle Foods Diner

Congressional Republicans have launched a war on the poor. We cannot abandon working families and the poor. Peace House keeps feeding Ashland’s neediest at Uncle Foods Diner. But we keep advocating for systemic change in Washington and Salem—raise the state minimum wage, stop spending money on immoral and useless wars, cut aid to Israel until it makes a just peace with the Palestinians. These are some of our campaigns. And we just hired an executive director, the first one since 2007, so we must raise more money. Please donate on line by clicking the Donate Now button directly below, or by mailing a tax-deductible check to Peace House at P.O. Box 524, Ashland, OR 97520.

Tell The President and Congress: Palestinian Lives Matter.  Click here.

My name is Eran Efrati, I am Jewish, a veteran of the Israeli Defense Forces, and a 7th generation Jerusalemite.
What I’ve seen in Israel over the last few weeks was already beyond anything I had witnessed in my life – even before the ground invasion of Gaza began.

I’ve seen terrified Palestinian children in Hebron and Halhul, sitting on the ruins of their homes. I’ve seen mobs in the street chanting “death to Arabs,” and soldiers lined up at the Gaza border, primed for the invasion which began Thursday.

And as much as it pains me to say it, I don’t think I can do a lot about it.

But I believe you can. Send a message to your Congressional Representatives and make sure they know you oppose this invasion.

American voices – and especially Jewish voices – are probably the most critical voices in the world right now. 

We need you to be as loud as you can saying you can’t support this invasion. That you can’t support human rights violations. That you can’t support the idea that Jewish lives matter more than Palestinian lives.

Before the ground invasion began, 45,000 people already signed Jewish Voice for Peace’s Open Letter calling for an end to this system of violence. But now we have to step up even more – way more. Take the next step now: Send a message to your Congressional Reps today.

This is a war of choice for the Israeli government. It’s about punishing Palestinian civilians and finding an outlet for hatred and fear that is exploding out from Israeli society. It’s about making sure that no matter how much Israeli politicians talk about peace, an actual resolution will remain impossible.

In Israel, Jewish values of equality and justice are being replaced with an ethic of vengeance.And I don’t think we can stop it from within.

But I think you can. 

Please join me and make sure they can hear you in DC and far beyond: We oppose the invasion, the bloodshed, the privileging of Jewish lives over others lives. We want justice for all, and won’t stop until that happens.
