The Transform Now Plowshares is an effort by people of faith to transform nuclear weapons into real, life-giving alternatives, to build true peace.


Inspired by the prophets Micah and Isaiah, Jesus and Gandhi, the Transform Now Plowshares began a symbolic conversion of the Y-12 Highly-Enriched Uranium Manufacturing Facility in Oak Ridge TN on July 28, 2012. Consequently they faced trial and conviction for property damage and were sentenced in February of 2014 to 3 and 5 year sentences. An unprecedented appellate court ruling invalidated their sabotage conviction and they were released from prison this past May.
