Corrections and additions to this media guide are welcome (but hopefully unnecessary!). The Washington Peace Letter also publishes the Peace & Justice Action Guide, an annual free listing of the more than 100 community action groups educating and organizing in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. For additonal copies of either guide or to be listed in next year’s editions, call the Washington Peace Center at (202) 234-2000, e-mail wpc@igc.org, and check their website, http://www.washingtonpeacecenter.org.
