Diversity Commitment

The Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane is committed to honoring the unique and dignified experience of every human being. To this end, PJALS invites input from a wide variety of community groups and individuals, seeking to integrate our experiences, honor our diversity and thereby strengthen the emerging diversity of our community.

We want participation and representation from families, low wage workers, faith communities, unions, and identity-based civic and advocacy organizations. We acknowledge the differences of community members with regard to race, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, physical ability, socioeconomic and cultural background, educational levels, marital status, and family circumstance.

We seek to foster mutual understanding and support through alliances with other groups affected by oppression in order to direct grassroots efforts toward increased justice.
