NEW! Community meetings!

OREPA announces the first in a series of community meetings for Knoxville and East Tennessee!


Short of taking a hammer to nuclear warheads (which some people do), is there anything regular people can really do to get rid of nuclear weapons?


You are invited to join the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance for an evening exploring what we can do about one of the great issues of our day”creating a nuclear weapons free future. As one local activist has said, “We have a special responsibility, because we have this bomb plant in our backyard.”


Education We’ll answer the question many folks around here don’t want you to ask: What are they doing in Oak Ridge, anyway?


Movement building We’ll enjoy snack food and music while we’re at it.


StrategyWe’ll talk about ways to be effective in planning and taking action.



Saturday, October 8 will be the first in a series of bi-monthly community meetings sponsored by the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance. The meetings are for OREPA members, friends, the curious, and those who have been asking, “How can I get involved in OREPA’s work?”


Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
