OUR MISSION

BOARD MEMBERS

Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice was founded during the Cold War of the 1980s to bring together community members in the quest for peace and nonviolence. Since then, our mission has expanded to embrace many connected social and political issues.

 

CCPJ, along with many local and national movements, increasingly understands the link between war and injustice.

We are committed to working against:

  • racism and ethnic hatred

  • mass incarceration and the school-to-prison pipeline

  • militarization of police forces

  • hostility and violence against women

  • proliferation of weapons in space

  • attacks and bullying against LGBTQ individuals

  • global warming and destruction of the natural environment

  • poverty, economic inequality, and tax injustice

  • violations of civil liberties and human rights

  • excessive military spending

  • hatred and scapegoating of immigrants

 

  • gun violence

 

  • wars of aggression, and endless wars

I believe peace will come
from millions of tiny seemingly inconsequential actions.
If  you want to have peace,
you live peace.
