About CCPJ

 The Charlottesville Center For Peace and Justice (CCPJ) was established in the early 1980s as a grassroots response to the threat of nuclear war and to promote alternatives to violence.  CCPJ promotes education and action for peace and justice in our community. We encourage all citizens to take responsibility for the policies and decisions of their government.  Since the events of September 11, 2001, and the ensuing "war on Terrorism", CCPJ has intensified its work and advocacy for peace and justice.

CCPJ is committed to:  
  • Peace, Justice, and Understanding
