What We Do

WHAT WE DO

The Peace & Justice Center is a Vermont-based non-profit, membership organization. Our mission is to create a just and peaceful world. To this end, we work on the interconnected issues of economic and racial justice, peace, and human rights through education, advocacy, training, nonviolent activism and community organizing.

CURRENT PJC PROGRAMS

Fair Trade Program & Store

The Fair Trade Program is largely embodied by our store but also includes external campaigns and educational programs.

Racial Justice Program

The Racial Justice Program has several components: internal organizational work, educational programs, supporting other groups lead by POC, and work with the police.

Peace Program

The Peace Program includes, anti-war programs, nonviolence-building programs, programs for the public, schools, faith-based organizations, businesses, and other institutions and groups.

Allied Groups

The Peace & Justice Center has a long history of supporting affiliated activist groups and their work.

Volunteers and Interns

Our organization would not exist as it does without the volunteers and interns who give so much of themselves to our mission.

Legislative Partnerships

We are grateful to work with hundreds of other groups and coalitions.

Activist Support and Collaboration

Whenever possible, we support the work of other activists. Some of these are local folks doing short-term projects. 

OTHER PEACE & JUSTICE CENTER PROGRAMS

While our primary focus areas are Racial Justice, Fair Trade, and Peace, we have been involved in a tremendous amount of other work through the decades. While some of that work is dormant or less active, we have resources available to others who are interested in them.

Peace & Justice Center’s Educational Program Catalog

The Peace & Justice Center is primarily working on three programs: Racial Justice, Peace, and Fair Trade educational work. Listed below are programs that we are interested in, care about, and have previously worked on, but are not working on in a big way at the moment.
