Support for Focus on Peace continues to grow. Veronica Nunn of Brooklyn for Peace wrote in an email "I looked at your website and I really like what the group is doing. There are quite a few people that are very turned off by the extreme left approach to peace.".
Joan Wile of Grandmothers Against the War wrote a comment to an article she also wrote stating her support for the Focus on Peace concept:
Reply: Focus on Peace -- Drop other IssuesI totally agree, Darren. I get so frustrated when at a rally, for instance, speakers bring up unconnected controversial issues that turn people off who otherwise are dedicated to ending the wars. It's certainly a problem, and I'm appreciative that you brought it up.

One of my Leftist Friends questioned how to bring inEnjoy the video and pictures of the Peace Fair:
people from other political persuasions to the
Anti-war movement because "they don't agree with us
on other issues". My feeling is that is why the anti-war movement
has had thirty years of fragmentation, marginalization,
and dissolution. The last March on Washington
I attended featured fifteen other issues, including a few I
disagreed with. That was over five years ago.
I decided they could stop the war without me.
