P&J Gets Matching Grant!
Help Us Meet Our Goal!

A generous donor who wishes to remain anonymous is giving the Peace Center a $2,000 Matching Grant. To raise the matching amount, our goal is to recruit 50 new memberships at $40 per person. We are half way to our goal already! Has your membership expired? Please renew today! Do you have a friend, family member or colleague who believes in the Peace Center mission and vision but is not a member? Please invite them to join. With your help, the P&J continues to provide space, services and support for these and many other accomplishments:

  • Creation of a community action network (Action NM) fostering collaboration of single-issue groups to advocate for peace and justice issues in the legislature
  • Hiring additional coordinator Bob Allen and raising staff salaries
  • Peace Café & Food Distribution fosters conversations, builds community and alleviates hunger
  • Website calendar, newsletter and Grassroots NM on KUNM publicize social justice events
  • Peace Hall continues to be an affordable space for events and meeting
  • Mentoring of high school and college interns

Here is what two members said recently about the P&J: “It‟s a great place to connect with positive community building peace and social justice movements.” And, “the Peace Center is such an important center in our community. Thanks to all the good people who made it possible and continue to make it possible, thanks all you wonderful spirits—to another 30 years of peace and justice work in Albuquerque—andiamo!”

You can join online at ABQPeaceAndJustice.org, mail your membership form (see page 7), or come into the office at 202 Harvard SE, 87106. And meet our new Administrative Coordinator Bob Allen! Huge shout-out to the hardworking Membership Committee—Bob A., Cecilia C., Renee W., Sharyn K., and Troy F.
