The Lawrence Coalition for Peace and Justice is dedicated to the propositions that violence begets more violence, that the forms of violence are social and economic as well as physical, and that the human spirit can reach its highest potential only in an atmosphere of peace, mutual respect, and generosity. A truly peaceful society must be a just society with equal rights, opportunity and fairness for all, and a commitment to the general well-being.
War is the antithesis of all these ideals and must be eradicated if the vision of a just and peaceful society is to become a reality.
The LCPJ has been working constantly for over a quarter of a century through its various educational and action programs to promote this vision.
