|The people in the Peace Studies Office bring the Kenapocomoco Coalition Newsnotes to you monthly during the academic year..

The things written in the newsletter do not necessarily reflect the thoughts, opinions, and beliefs of everyone in the Peace Studies office or Kenapocomoco Coalition. If you have something you would like to add to the newsletter, please contact Heidi Gross, the Peace Studies intern, head cook, and editor of the Kenapocomoco Newsnotes.
