The Rocky Flats Truth Force was a grass-roots non-violent anti-nuclear group formed during protests at the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant near Golden, Colorado during the late 1970s. Demonstrations and track blockages at the Rocky Flats Plant in 1978 resulted in multiple arrests of the protesters.[1] The Rocky Flats Plant was a US nuclear weapon complex located near to Denver Colorado which operated from 1952 until 1992, creating considerable radioactive contamination.

Some of the people involved in the Truth Force movement formed the Boulder Peace Center, later the Rocky Mountain Peace Center and then the current name - the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center.[2]
