Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center (IJPC)
We are a coalition of faith-based organizations and individuals who work together to educate around justice issues, take collaborative action and do public witness. We address local, national and international concerns focusing on economic justice, women's issues, human rights, racial equality, peace and the environment.
Founded in 1985, our goals continue to be: to deepen awareness of justice as integral, not optional, to our faith response. to network participating organizations and to collaborate with other concerned groups for stronger public witness and impact on justice and peace issues. to plan and carry out programs of education and action which affect structural injustice.
Our current program areas work in issue of peace and nonviolence, immigration, anti-death penalty. Our organizational priorities include: Human Rights / Violence Prevention / Death Penalty; Women's Concerns in Society and Church; Peace / Ecology; Racial Justice; and Economic Justice.
To meet our goals, IJPC often collaborates with local, state and national groups around specific issues or events.Collaboration is possible when both IJPC and the collaborating group agree on that specific issue . IJPC works from a faith base and expects all collaborators to respect this stance.
