We are grateful to everyone who supported our Big Idea for 2016 and showed your commitment to the work of the Monterey Peace and Justice Center. We plan to offer a series of workshops in 2016 focusing on non-nonviolent communication and nonviolent conflict resolution skills, providing tools for peace-building.  We are currently planning programs for the New Year and we welcome your suggestions as well.

Come to the Monterey Peace and Justice Center for interesting and provocative programs, forums, and actions that promote evolution to a world without war or want.
