About Working to abolish nuclear weapons and create nonviolent community

Home  »  About

The Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance is a collection of eternally hopeful souls who believe we have the power to create the world we hope to live in. Even though most of them are old enough to know better, they’ve been insisting that nonviolent actions—speaking at public hearings; grassroots organizing; public workshops; civil resistance actions; letters to the editor—can lead to a world free of nuclear weapons.

OREPA is committed to nonviolence and believes in using every tool in the toolbox. Our main focus is stopping nuclear weapons production at the Y12 Nuclear Weapons Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and protecting the environment threatened by legacy and ongoing activities at the Oak Ridge Nuclear Reservation.

We also work intentionally to create nonviolent community in East Tennessee. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit grassroots organization; we welcome everyone who would join us in the struggle to create peace in the world.

    Ralph,

    It seems like time for you to come back and speak to APEC about Oak Ridge. We need to bring a contingency to your next big demonstration and last time your talk helped us organize a good group.

    Maybe you could bring Carol Green with you!

    Our next big meeting is in Abingdon on May 26th. Could you come then? Or we could plan a special event.
