Letters & Actions for Peace in Koreas


Yesterday, February 25, Jeff Vitelli and Stefan Rogers traveled to Princeton to be part of a peace vigil on the eve of the Korea peace talks in Vietnam.  They joined others on a cold and windy day to witness for serious peace negotiations.  Here’s a photo from their vigil.   

Today, Susie Ravitz and Monica McAghon have a letter about the peace talks published in both The Morning Call and The Express Times.  You can read them here:  https://www.mcall.com/opinion/letters/mc-rea-ravitz-mcaghon-trump-jong-un-meeting-20190225-story.html  and here:  https://www.lehighvalleylive.com/opinion/2019/02/negotiate-for-real-peace-in-korea-letter.html .
