What is PJALS?

Our mission is to engage everyday people to build a just and nonviolent world through community organizing and leadership development.

Our vision for PJALS: Everyday people are together advancing peace, racial equity, economic justice, and human rights through campaigns grounded in the intersections of these values.

Our Peace and Justice Action League community is intergenerational, cross-class, multiracial, urban and rural, and disproportionately LGBTQ.
