The History of PJALS
PJALS works on issues of peace, economic justice, and human rights. We have been active since 1975, promoting social, political and economic change through grassroots community organizing, nonviolence training, volunteer involvement, education and advocacy. We network with local, regional and national peace and human rights groups to initiate change locally and globally. PJALS is a nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation.
PJALS depends upon gifts and dues from members. We welcome anyone who favors free exchange of ideas and nonviolent action to war or to inaction and ignorance. PJALS members are low-income and professional, young and older, new to action and seasoned, urban and rural. Members determine their own level of support and participation. Members also determine issues and projects that get the most attention and effort.
