FAQ on Vegetarianism: (See post with more info: here). Many of our members or attendees are vegetarian or vegan. So, we strive to serve vegetarian dishes, with at least some vegan choices, at our events.

FAQ on Grant applications:

The PeaceSmiths’ board has created the following policy – “All grant applications will be reviewed and signed by the Treasurer and at least one other board member.”

FAQ on Comments:

The PeaceSmiths, Inc. web-site is a new experiment. We have decided to keep the comments opened up for sharing and reflection. Though, we do review comments before posting. At this time, our policy is to not advertise events that are not PeaceSmiths-related activities. We are also very careful about where we link, and we do ask you to use your own judgment and care in following links from this site (we can’t be responsible for outside links.) We accept comments which: are related to PeaceSmiths issues or events; do not contain hate-messages; do not promote non-PeaceSmiths related activities; link to PeaceSmiths-related websites. Thanks.

Please submit calendar items or links via e-mail for review to: peacesmiths@yahoo.com. peacesmiths at yahoo dot com.
