COMMUNITY BUILDING

Charlottesville Center for Peace & Justice has a long history of working with community members and organizations on behalf of our mission.

Every summer, CCPJ hosts our Community Gathering, bringing together dozens of local activist and advocacy groups to enjoy a light super and get to know one another and our various activities.

 

We also maintain our traditional presence in the local community by:

Marching in the Batesville Day Parade and Dogwood Festival Parade​

Participating in the Charlottesville Vegan Roots Festival
