About Plowshare Center

THE BEGINNING OF THE PLOWSHARE CENTER

A look back over the twenty-four years of Plowshare’s history reveals: hundreds of dedicated volunteers who have sustained its peace building work, serving on the board of directors, committees, and working in the shop; twenty-eight dedicated hired staff members over the years; and thousands of community people of all ages who have supported and participated in Plowshare’s programs and events! The Waukesha Center for Peace and Justice, as the Plowshare Center was first called, was started in June of 1989.
