The Monterey County Weekly kicked off its 2014 Monterey County Gives! campaign on November 13th and the Monterey Peace and Justice Center is honored to be among the 101 non-profits selected this year. The money MPJC raises will help bring our “Big Idea” to fruition – Building a Just Community through wider dissemination of programs. We plan to extend outreach to Marina and Salinas by taking film events to venues around the county. This outreach also includes plans to launch the Monterey Community Education Program in the Monterey County jail.
Please make a generous tax-free donation online to keep this community resource going! Find MPJC’s page under the “Community & Social Service” category of nonprofits. Support MPJC’s appeal and take advantage of matching grants through midnight December 31st, 2014.
You may also write a check, made payable to the Monterey County Weekly Community Fund, addressed to 668 Williams Ave., Seaside, CA 93955. Be sure to specify “MPCJ” in the check memo area and include your address, phone, and email address.

MPJC continues to support the efforts of those who care about social issues by providing meeting space, hosting workshops, presenting speakers, and encouraging participants to take speak truth to power. Free tutoring of English as a Second Language and math classes are conducted by MIIS and CSUMB college students for local residents.
Many thanks to those who have generously given to the Monterey Peace and Justice Center (aka Peace Resource Center) through the Monterey County Weekly’s annual Monterey Gives! fundraising drive. To that will be added a partial match from the Monterey GIVES! fund.
