Compassionate Brockport, a group working for a more caring community in Brockport, NY (a village on the Erie Canal just west of Rochester), is holding an arts contest for students from elementary school through college on the theme of Love without Violence. Inspiration for entries can be had from the "exemplary commitments" made "to a world of Love without Violence" by Malala Yousafazi, Martin Luther King Jr., Franz Jagerstatter, Rosa Parks, and Ben Salmon. The guidelines for entries are at https://www.compassionatebrockport.org/ARTS-CONTEST.php.
The Friends of Franz and Ben have made a contribution to the Arts Contest prize fund.
The April 2017 issue of Peace & Change contains an article by Dr. Michael Baxter of Regis University, Denver entitled 'On the Front Lines in "The Army of Peace": The Life and Witness of Ben Salmon to a Church and a World at War.' The link to the published article online is http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/pech.12234/full. However, the Friends of Franz and Ben have obtained a license to reproduce the contents of the article on this site and a copy of the article provided by Professor Baxter can be accessed by clicking anywhere on the abstract below.
Please read the article and join the counter-tradition of radical pacifism discussed by Michael Baxter envisions arising from Ben Salmon's witness.
Note that a quote from page 212 of Ben Salmon's Magnum Opus was incorrectly published in the article about 2/3rds of the way down page 16. The quote should be "Evil can be conquered by Good..."
