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The news that the Trump Administration has rescinded DACA is devastating.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 As U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said today (September 5, 2017), “The program known as DACA…has been rescinded,” the faces of our YES members were fixed in our mind.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.

Pursuing Peace in Cincinnati – What is Nonviolent Cincinnati?

On September 20th, at Pursuing Peace in Cincinnati, IJPC will host activist and author, John Dear. We will also honor local peace activists Don Sherman and Bonnie Neumeier. We will use this event to launch Nonviolent Cincinnati - a new initiative that we can't wait to share with you. For a bit of a background on Nonviolent Cities and Nonviolent Cincinnati, read here.

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.
