2010 is off to a great start!

Peace in Focus thanks everyone who came out to our opening ceremony at the Harriet Tubman House on Feb. 11 in Boston! For those who weren't able to attend, the photos are on display (and for sale) through April. To see more photos visit our online Galleries.

We offer the following images of our 2010 activities thus far:
