About the Dallas Peace & Justice Center 

OUR PURPOSE is to present educational and cultural programs and participate in public protests and demonstrations concerning peacemaking, the recognition of human and civil rights, and the pursuit of ecological and climate justice — including historical, theological, ethical, and practical aspects of a non-violent approach to conflict resolution.

The ongoing work of the Center is done through committees; at present our three standing committees:

The Middle East Peace Committee

The Nuclear Free World Committee, and

Human Rights at Home Committee

 

The Vision of the Dallas Peace & Justice Center is of a nonviolent world that works for all with justice and respect for the Earth, self and others...a world where our children and future generations can expect to live in a just and peaceful society based on connectedness and compassion.

Value Statement: The Dallas Peace & Justice Center believes in the power of peace and justice to create a sustainable world. Seeking the transformation of society, we embrace the following values:

Nonviolent Action – which compels us to construct systemic change in conflict by winning over the hearts and minds

Constructive Conflict - a process which provides an opportunity to attend to varied viewpoints, and serves as a mode of truth-finding and community-building

Collaborative Strategies - the desire to join with other organization with similar goals and objectives to build mutual support; generate ideas and alternatives; take collective action and expand resources

Inter-connectedness - the discovery of the many reciprocal connections we have that move us towards a sustainable and just human presence

Compassion and Forgiveness - in words and actions through having awareness of suffering and the desire to relieve it

 

The Mission of the Dallas Peace and Justice Center is to promote a just and peaceful world through constructive action in education, dialogue, reconciliation and advocacy.
