10 Reasons Why the TransPacific Partnership Must Be Defeated

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a disastrous trade agreement designed to protect the interests of the largest multi-national corporations at the expense of workers, consumers, the environment and the foundations of American democracy. It will also negatively impact some of the poorest people in the world.

The TPP is a treaty that has been written behind closed doors by the corporate world. Incredibly, while Wall Street, the pharmaceutical industry and major media companies have full knowledge as to what is in this treaty, the American people and members of Congress do not. They have been locked out of the process. Further, all Americans, regardless of political ideology, should be opposed to the “fast track” process which would deny Congress the right to amend the treaty and represent their constituents’ interests.

As 2014 comes to a close.....

As 2014 comes to a close, the Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma County looks back on thirty years of amazing history working for peace and justice. 

As the Center embarks upon its second thirty years, we wish to express our gratitude for your support over the years. Without you, our longevity and impact simply would not have been possible.

To honor the longevity and tenacity of our community seeking peace and justice, we ask that you make a tax-deductible contribution to the Peace and Justice Center before January 1st.

While any amount is deeply appreciated, we gratefully ask you to consider a special level of giving to commemorate the Center's thirty years of success and to ensure it continues for decades to come.

Again, thank you for your support.

MLK Jr. once wrote that the biggest stumbling block to freedom was "the white moderate, who is more devoted to 'order' than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: 'I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action'; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom..."
