An East Texas Group Promotes Peace

If you drove down South Broadway today, you may have noticed signs displayed on the side of the road. The East Texans for Peace and Justice put out the signs in Bergfeld Park, for their Peace Presence. ETPJ is an interfaith organization that promotes peace and justice through education, advocacy and action. The public was invited to stop by and ask questions about the group's message.

"What we want to do is just make people think," said Kate Hutson, a member. "The signs we have out are holding the words of Jesus and the idea is just hoping that people will begin to think about spiritual issues related to the country's policies on war and peace." The organization formed one year ago.
