Peace and Justice Center

of Nevada County

Vision

We envision a world of justice, peace, equality and freedom. This vision includes community where differences are respected, conflicts are addressed peacefully, supportive structures are developed.  Where people are empowered and live in harmony with the earth, nurtured by diverse traditions that foster compassion and reconciliation.

We are dedicated to principles of non-violent resolution of conflict. Members may not represent PJCNC by spoken or written word that advocates any violent action.

We are not affiliated with any political party or religion. While PJCNC is a diverse community of many spiritual, religious, and political beliefs, individuals may not represent PJCNC as being a political or religious entity.

Education and Action for Peace and Justice

The Peace and Justice Center of Nevada County honors the essential power of people in community.

Through open inquiry, education, and nonviolent direct action, we nurture peace, equality, justice and dignity in ourselves, our community and our Earth.

 

History

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

The Nevada County Peace Center roots go back to the “Outlook – Journal For A Nuclear-Free Sierra” edited by Fatima Gips and Arnold Erickson in 1984. It was stated therein that “A Peace Center is being organized in Nevada County to provide a resource center that can extend the work for peace into the larger community.”

But it was not until 2002 that the Peace Center of Nevada County took shape. On April 20 of that year, a small team organized car pools and rented buses to transport local activists to the International ANSWER Coalition sponsored peace march and rally in San Francisco. At a de-briefing meeting shortly afterward the current Peace and Justice Center of Nevada County was born. That year regular meetings, vigils and 15 events were held.  A web site was started.

In 2003 we held more events, including buses, to two rallies in San Francisco.

In 2004 the Social Forum – Film Series at the Magic Theater, the local chapter of Grandmothers For Peace, and a Military Recruitment Alternatives group were established.  We held five ecology/sustainability events, ten other educational events and participated in the Altar Show at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. We ran buses to demonstrations in Livermore and San Francisco.

In 2005 we established a Board of Directors, offered training in nonviolence, traveled by bus to San Francisco for a rally and march, exhibited at the Nevada County Fair, celebrated with Utah Phillips on the occasion of his 70th birthday, and held over 15 other events.

We need a volunteer historian to fill in the years since!
