PEACE, NOT WAR
SOCIAL JUSTICE, NOT INEQUALITY
WE ARE A CATALYST FOR CHANGE
The Monterey County Weekly launched its 2015 Monterey County Gives! campaign on November 12th and the Monterey Peace and Justice Center is honored to be among the 141 non-profits selected this year.
The money MPJC raises will help bring to fruition our “Big Idea”, which is to develop and offer a series of workshops and speaker events in 2016 focusing on peaceful methods of civic engagement and community activism, including: Kingian Nonviolence, nonviolent conflict resolution skills, and the balanced Restorative Justice model. Using these tools of nonviolence, situations fueled by anger, disagreement, and violence can be transformed into positive, just and peaceful outcomes.
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, 2015.
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.
Many thanks to those who have generously given to the Monterey Peace and Justice 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.
