Friends of Peace Pilgrim
Friends of Peace Pilgrim is a non-profit, all volunteer organization devoted to spreading Peace Pilgrim's message. Our mission is continually being fulfilled by the loving efforts of "Friends" of Peace Pilgrim and peace seekers throughout the world.
The first Peace Pilgrim Center opened in 1983 in Hemet, CA, in the home of John and Ann Rush, who knew Peace Pilgrim for 24 years. She was often a guest in their home, and they published her Steps Toward Inner Peace booklet while she was alive. After 18 years, the Center relocated to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in Somerset, CA. Then in 2005, we moved again. Now different aspects of our work and service are based in Connecticut, California, and Oklahoma.
Many gifts, mostly small, have made it possible to send hundreds of thousands of free copies of our book and other materials to anyone who asks. Publication and mailing costs are paid for by donations from Peace Pilgrim's friends throughout the world who want to share her inspiring words with others.
