Peace & Justice Advocacy

IPJ, since 1970, continues to try to educate on some of the many important issues affecting our local and global family.  It is our goal to update and inform you on current legislation and it's effects, and to present options for taking positive action.  We also through years of networking, attempt to provide links to different groups working specifically on particular issues, to give additional tools of knowledge and insight towards creating a more just society for all, and our planet itself.
