    Peace and Justice Works

    Peace and Justice Works [PJW], formerly known as Portland Peaceworks, is an Oregon non- profit corporation whose main purpose is to educate the general public on important issues including but not limited to: peace, justice, the environment, and human rights.

    Organizationally, much of Peace and Justice Works' activities are conducted through Project Groups, also known as affinity groups. Peace and Justice Works is primarily an umbrella organization which disseminates information on the tragedy of military interventions and military spending, builds coalitions among groups whose goals intersect with our own, and particpates in programs initiated by Oregon PeaceWorks (with whom we are affiliated), annual Hiroshima Day commemorations, and various community activities with other peace and justice organizations.

    PJW has helped organize and coordinate multiple major mobilizations for peace since late 2002 with various other groups seeking to end (and prevent) the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Previously, one of our largest activities was the Peace and Justice Fair, held on Memorial Day (1992- 1995, 1997, 1999) to remember those who gave their lives in war by working toward a world without war. The community event involves the neighborhood surrounding Irving Park as well as activists from all over the region, musicians, food, children's activities and speakers. Literature from many groups is distributed to make this an educational event as well as a celebration.

    While Project Groups can (by our bylaws) be created or disbanded from time to time, existing groups at this time are:
    (i) Portland Copwatch
    (ii) Iraq Affinity Group
    (iii) Sarajevo Peace Centre/People's Aid to Former Yugoslavia.
    (iv) Pentagon Porkbusters
    (v) Portland SOA Watchers

    Nothing stated above limits Peace and Justice Works to the project groups listed. As circumstances develop, we will begin other projects. Our overall mission will remain to educate the general public on issues including but not limited to peace, justice, the environment and human rights.
