Re: Our future!
2018 has been difficult a difficult year for many. Children have been separated from parents. Jews praying in a synagogue have been gunned down. Journalists have been killed. The threat to our global climate continues. These events and others demonstrate the urgent need for action and voices grounded in peace and justice. The Peace and Justice Studies Association (PJSA) has been, and continues to be, an important voice and space for constructive, informative, and transformative experiences & conversations. PJSA brings together like-minded, committed individuals (activists, K-12 and university faculty) and provides support, resources, and a platform for scholarship, pedagogy, and activism.
Membership in PJSA includes access to an active and engaging listserv that facilitates conversations and rich resources for teaching and working in areas regarding peace, peace building, and justice. We have a speaker’s bureau, a book series, a syllabus project, a program review system, a process for delivering position papers, an engaging annual international conference, and much more. We are pleased by the steady growth of our organization and we look forward to the work we will continue to do.
As with any organization, it takes resources to operate. We are asking that you continue to be part of the PJSA team, both through your contributions of content and financially. If you are in the habit of making year-end or seasonal donations, please consider adding the PJSA (an established 501(c)3) to your list of organizations to support this year. As we enter this next year of promoting peace-oriented research, action, and education, we are counting on your ongoing engagement so that we can continue the crucial work of peace.
