PJC Vision: The Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma County envisions a world of peace, justice and freedom. It is a revolutionary and empowering vision of a democratic community where differences are respected, conflicts are addressed nonviolently, oppressive structures are dismantled, and people live in harmony with the earth, nurtured by diverse traditions that foster compassion, solidarity and reconciliation. Therefore, we commit ourselves to replace violence, war, racism and economic injustice through active nonviolence as a transforming way of life and as a means of radical change – personally, locally, nationally and globally.

PJC Mission: The mission of the Peace & Justice Center is to inform, support and energize the Sonoma County community to create peace and social justice through active non-violence. We sponsor educational events, publish informative articles on current issues and promote peace and justice related efforts in the community. We support local activist groups by providing meeting space and organizational resources.

We have begun a new project - Freedom from Militarization: Diagnosing and Healing the Moral Injury of Violence. The focus is to address the ever-expanding gray area that exists between military and civilian life that normalizes war and violence. Our emphasis will be identifying and raising awareness of local behaviors and organizations that support the militarization of society. We'll be seeking your involvement and encouragement as we address four main categories: 1) Law enforcement; 2) Local activities that support the military; 3) Local companies which profit from militarization; and 4) Normalization of the military in culture and society. To learn more, contact Susan Lamont at freedom@pjcsonoma.org.
