Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice inspires, educates, and mobilizes people to unite across differences and to act from their shared ethical and spiritual values in pursuit of peace with social and environmental justice.
Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice envisions a world free from violence, including the violence of war, poverty, oppression, and environmental devastation. To enact this vision, we commit to nurture a community in which compassion and respect foster actions that dismantle systems of violence while simultaneously creating systems of peace, justice, and ecological sustainability.
What can we do in the face of the growing anti-Muslim and anti-Refugee rhetoric in the US? We can speak out for inclusion!
The Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice and Interfaith Round Table of Washtenaw County launched the One Human Family campaign in 2016 to mobilize religious and community voices to say NO to hate and fear-mongering and YES to inclusion and welcoming.
