The Monterey Peace and Justice Center is thrilled to be among this year’s 162 non-profits participating in this year’s Monterey County Gives! campaign. The Monterey County Weekly, in collaboration with the Community Foundation of Monterey County and the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, launched the 2020 Monterey County Gives! campaign on November 12th.
Funds raised through this annual campaign will help MPJC present programming that focuses on “A Socially Just Economy”. We will examine economic models that perpetuate barriers to fairness and opportunity across all segments of our society.
Our Big Idea is to present programming that will examine historical economic models in contrast to new paradigms that place value on non-marketable goods, products, and resources. We will invite the public to participate in educational forums that delve into cooperative economic systems — those that employ true wealth indicators such as the work of caring for people and our environment.
Coming together, sharing ideas, and considering new equity-minded economic systems is how we can emerge from this pandemic stronger and more resilient than before.
