|Looking for a network of other folks who are passionate (or at least
heading that direction) about peace and social justice issues?
Anxious to become better informed about the hidden truth (the unreported
‘other’ side) of social justice issues?
Interested in simplifying
your life and living closer to nature - and treading more lightly on
our mother, Planet Earth?
You’ll find all this and much, much more as a member of the Pikes
Peak Justice and Peace Commission! Our mission
statement says it all - and our members make it happen. Find
out more about us and see for yourself!
If you’re familiar with our newspaper, Active
for Justice, you already know the flavor of our organization.
If you haven’t seen it, pick up a sample copy at one of the several distribution
sites in Colorado Springs-college campuses, coffee shops, public library
branches, book stores, etc. You can also learn about us (for a limited
time) through a series of nine articles we’re currently publishing in the
Independent. This series will run through the end of March.
You can also read them right here.
Know that members of the Commission enjoy use of our Peace and Justice
Library, participate in educational and activist events of the J &
P, are invited to volunteer with our programs, get to know lots of other
wonderful people, and receive 10 issues of our newspaper Active
for Justice each year.
Our Commission’s meeting space and offices are located at 29 South Institute,
Colorado Springs. If you’d like to know more, call us at 719-632-6189, e-mail
us right here, or stop in and see us. Our annual membership
dues are $40. All dues and donations help to support our programs
and activist work. This year the donations of all new members are
being matched dollar for dollar by the Gay and Lesbian Fund for Colorado.
a great time to join the Commission!
Please send membership information (name, address, telephone number,
e-mail address, areas of interest, and whatever else you’d like to tell
us) and your check to Pikes Peak Justice and Peace Commission, 29 South
Institute, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. We look forward to meeting
you in person.
Welcome to the Commission!
