CONNECTIONS encourages free speech to serve truth and build a more just, compassionate, peaceful and environmentally healthy community and world. We welcome pertinent signed articles - up to 800 words - and letters with address and phone number. We reserve the right to select and edit for length, taste, error and libel. Our deadline is the 10th of each month. Letters, articles, and comments may be submitted to Connections by email, or send typed article on paper or on 3.5 diskette to CONNECTIONS c/o Myrtle Osner, 1104 Wellesley, Modesto 95350.

Since 1971, the Peace/Life Center has promoted non-violent social change. CONNECTIONS' editorial committee views peace as built on economic and social justice and equal access to the political process. Peace is grounded in people developing spiritual, intellectual and cultural resources to live with integrity and serve humanity with generosity. Peace is connected to the earth; socially responsible living calls us to respect the environment as well as people.

Via CONNECTIONS we seek to enhance community awareness and concern, bridge interests of diverse groups, work together on common problems. We challenge ourselves and others to seek non-violent solutions and thus hope to nurture a deeper commitment to a better world.
