He has also been a long-time fighter for peace and justice. His writings have appeared in many publications, and he has made many media appearances, including on *Fox News* (see Bill Barclay video).

In addition to Dr. Barclay, a panel of local residents described how they have been affected by the economic crises.

We also had a lively question and comment session.

  DuPage Peace Through Justice Coalition  

A Citizens' Group based in DuPage County in the Western Suburbs of Chicago, Illinois

The purpose of the DuPage Peace Through Justice Coalition is multifaceted: to promote nonviolent solutions to terrorism, to call on members of Congress to protect civil liberties, and to provide a public forum to present alternatives to war and education on cross cultural issues. The Coalition is made up of people from diverse ethnic, racial, religious and cultural backgrounds united in their belief that war is not the answer to terrorism. For more information about the past or planned activities of the Coalition, please contact the DPTJC coordinating committee at:
