In June, 2013, Ched and Elaine interviewed a "mother of the movement" for peace and justice, celebrating the 40th anniversary of Jonah House, the Christian peacemaking community in Baltimore, MD.  Liz talked about:  

  • early influences during her religious novitiate (including Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, and Bill Stringfellow); 
  • the anti-war movement of the late 60s (including the Baltimore 4 and Catonsville 9 draft board actions and the Harrisburg Trial); 
  • beginning Jonah House in 1973 with husband Philip Berrigan; 
  • the Plowshares disarmament actions; 
  • doing time in jail and sustaining children in community; 
  • Phil's passing in 2002; and 
  • the urban homesteading experiment at St. Peter's Cemetery.
This was our annual FREE Community Webinar, so be sure and listen to the end, where we make an appeal for your donation to help the generational transition at Jonah House.
