Upcoming PJC Events

The following events are hosted, organized, co-sponsored, or in collaboration with/by the Peace & Justice Center and are open to the public – we hope you can join us!

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. This helps keep our programs financially accessible to all, regardless of income. Not sure if you should pay less, more, or nothing? View our Sliding Scale document to find an amount that feels appropriate to you.

Chocolate & Modern Slavery

October 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The cocoa industry generates over 130 billion dollars a year. So then why do companies like Hershey and Nestle still use exploitative child labor? Why, after admitting to it, do they continue to utilize it?

During this discussion, we will explore the cocoa industry’s lack of accountability on a global scale. How wealth distribution practices perpetuate generational poverty and enable modern slavery. Our hope is to not only educate but to inspire you to take action in a variety of ways that fit your lifestyle. Please be sure to register for Zoom call info!

Suggested donation $10, no one turned away for lack of funds.  Not sure if you should pay less, nothing, or more? View our Sliding Scale document to choose an amount that feel appropriate to you.
