Stay Social to Support the DREAM Act

After the Trump administration ended DACA on September 5th, the DREAM Act, a bi-partisan legislation that would protect Dreamers, is needed more than ever before. YES is devoted to pressuring our members of Congress to support and co-sign the DREAM Act. One of the ways to pressure our congressman is through social media. Join YES in this social media campaign!

Report Reveals Backgrounds on Ohio’s Death Row Inmates

Late August, The Fair Punishment Project released a report concerning Ohio’s death penalty titled “Prisoners on Ohio’s Execution List Defined by Intellectual Impairment, Mental Illness, Trauma, and Young Age”. As an initiative run through Harvard Law School, The Fair Punishment Project works for a fair and accountable justice system. They address excessive punishments, and issues in the broken judicial system. This report is one of their newest reports addressing the unjust use of the death penalty throughout the United States.

IJPC Statement regarding Trump Adminstration’s Rescinding of DACA

The news that the Trump Administration has rescinded DACA is devastating. Several of IJPC’s Youth Educating Society (YES) members are DACA recipients themselves, or have family or friends who have DACA. As U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said today (September 5, 2017), “The program known as DACA…has been rescinded,” the faces of our YES members were fixed in our mind. We know that the faces, the stories, and the dreams of our YES members are representative of the estimated 800,000 other DACA recipients across the country whose lives are forever changed by this news. To take away their legal status so they can be deported in order to illustrate a tough stance on immigration is immoral and wrong.

Death Penalty

Ending the death penalty has been a key focus area of IJPC for almost 20 years. Learn more about proposed legislation to improve the current system, growing opposition to the death penalty, local partners, Families that Matter, and how you can get involved.

Human Trafficking

All forms of human trafficking are a concern internationally as well as in our own communities of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Each year an estimated 1,078 Ohio children become victims of sex trafficking and 3,016 more are at-risk.

Immigration

IJPC fully believes that immigrants should be welcomed to the United States and our current immigration law does not support that. Learn about our Youth Educating Society (YES) Program that empowers young leaders and their allies to advocate for immigration reform.

Peace + Nonviolence

Dialogue serves to promote civil discourse, stimulate critical thinking and create an environment where people of differing perspectives can feel safe and comfortable conversing and learning from one another. IJPC works to create peaceful and nonviolent communities.
