The Peace & Justice Network of San Joaquin County (PJNSJC) is a local grassroots, all volunteer educational non-profit, based in Stockton, in the Central Valley of California. We have been working on issues of peace, justice, and a healthy environment for over 30 years. To that end the group publishes and distributes a free newspaper, Connections, provides access to a local cable television for producing shows, participates in the local Earth Day, sponsors the Peaceful Holiday Fair, and other events. In September 2005 we opened the John Morearty Peace Center providing the liberal community with a meeting place and a space for presenting movies, music and speakers. Also within the Peace Center is the studio for Stone Soup-Stockton Community Radio. We encourage people to educate themselves with a variety of points of view and news beyond the mainstream and engage in conversations that will move our community and the world community forward.
We welcome all who agree with the following mission statement to join us in working for these essential goals.
” The Peace & Justice Network is a nonprofit educational organization committed to the vision of a world in which the equality of all persons is achieved, basic needs are met, conflict is resolved nonviolently, and the earth’s resources are shared responsibly for the well-being of all her inhabitants and all future generations. ”
