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.

For too long we’ve looked away. Now is the time to come together in community and plan best ways to support both local and national efforts seeking immigrant justice. Please join us at Rights & Democracy HQ, 241 N. Winooski Ave, BTV, on TUESDAY, October 15 from 5:30-7:30, to discuss how to ensure that our efforts are long-term, sustained, and supportive of both local and national orgs doing the work on the ground. Arrive early (5:30) for food & conversation. We will then begin promptly at 6PM. Free childcare provided. Food generously donated by the Vermont Worker Center’s People’s Kitchen but cash donations to offset costs greatly appreciated. This location is accessible for people with disabilities.
