Upcoming PJC Events
The following events are hosted, organized, co-sponsored, or put on in partnership with/by the Peace & Justice Center and are open to the public – we hope you can make them!
We charge a fee for many of our publicly hosted programs. No individual is turned away from any of our our programs due to a lack of funds. People under 25 are not expected to contribute financially. We ask those who are able to pay full price or more for our programs to do so. This helps keep our programs financially accessible to all, regardless of income. Not sure if you should pay less, nothing, or more? View our Sliding Scale document to choose an amount that feel appropriate to you.

Banana Land Documentary Screening
April 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Wednesday, April 17, Jost Foundation Room (422), UVM Davis Center, 7-9 pm. Join us for a free screening of Banana Land, a documentary exposing the truths of the banana industry in Latin America. Bananas have been promoted as wholesome and healthy, but behind the smiling Miss Chiquita propaganda lies a past and present system of terrorism, worker exploitation, biological disasters, and environmental damage. After learning about the oppressive banana industry, we will discuss new perspectives and action steps. Let’s question WHY the U.S. has an entire day dedicated to bananas on National Banana Day 2019. FREE.
