Jonah House

Frida Berrigan's article "My Brother's Blood Remains"

Frida Berrigan's article "My Brother's Blood Remains" from Year One.

One of Jonah House’s central tenets was using collective action to resist warmaking. At first, the community’s resistance focused on the Vietnam War, but later shifted to nuclear weapons. Organizing around anti-nuclear issues helped to create a foundation for the Plowshares movement.

Jonah House produced two publications, Year One and And How Do We Begin. The publication Year One featured individual and community acts of peace activism around the world. And How Do We Begin primarily focused on women's issues and experiences within the peace movement.
