Peace and Justice

Peace and Justice at the Parliament of the World’s Religions

The Peace and Justice Task Force at the Parliament of the World’s Religions is a strategic combination of the former Justice Task Force and the Countering War, Hate & Violence Task Force, in a common mission dedicated to pursuing our mission by advancing concrete change toward a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. 

The task force is committed advancing our understandings of justice in the contemporary world and work to reconcile differences in the theory and practice of justice and peace, in order to bring about concrete change in various settings and conditions across the globe.

We recognize the necessity for being rigorously thoughtful and deliberately engaged in overcoming differences that obstruct the achievement of justice – fostering programs and initiatives that move constructively beyond talk of injustice to achieving, through concrete action, greater justice wherever there is injustice.

We engage thinkers and doers that can demonstrate how transformation occurs, including those who are already active in projects that offer insights and training, so that Parliament delegates are empowered to engage in their own work for transformative change.
