ON THE COVER: There are many different perceptions of what peace means. For some, it is a world without war; for others it revolves around a holistic approach to human rights. Here at The Indy, we believe peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of justice. In our annual Peace on Earth issue, we celebrate other Santa Barbarans who uphold that view, such as Vandenberg protestor Dennis Apel and the Doctors Without Walls street team who administer medical help to the homeless. It all starts here.
