BENEFITING: Intercommunity Justice And Peace Center
EVENT: Cincinnati Gives Challenge
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
It's November 2016. What does the world need more of right now?
We need to truly care for one another, to see this global community as part of our team, to not succumb to fear or "othering".
IJPC is a 31 year old education and advocacy nonprofit in Cincinnati that specializes in providing opportunities for people to gain empathy on social justice issues. Whether it's a dialogue about racism and what actions we can each take to become anti-racists, a Voices of Experience panel featuring death row exonorees and former state employees speaking out against the death penalty, or a meeting of YES (Youth Educating Society) empowering immigrant youth and their allies to gain skills to make them better community organizers for comprehensive immigration reform, IJPC convenes passionate people together to stand for peace and justice. We've organized rallies, demonstrations, and vigils, providing people a chance for action and involvement with social justice issues they care about.
