Many thanks to those who gave generously to the Monterey Peace and Justice Center throughout the year in 2016.   Through your generosity $14,571 was raised during the 2016 Monterey County Gives! campaign, and to that will be added a partial match from the Monterey County Weekly and the Community Foundation of Monterey County.

Our “Big Idea” for 2017 is to examine the root causes of gun violence, particularly among our disadvantaged communities, and to promote community advocacy in breaking the cycle of violence.

MPJC will continue to need your donations to support our mission of furthering peace, social justice and environmental sustainability. You may use your credit card with the “Donate” button at the top right on this page, or write a check to:
