About IJPC’s Annual Gathering
The Annual Gathering is a fundraising event with goals including: 1. Host marketable event to draw attention, 2. Increase IJPC’s network of supporters, 3. Inspire people with an upbeat, hopeful tone.

Previous guests and speakers have included Fania Davis, Winona LaDuke, Jose Antonio Vargas, and Fr. John Dear.
Planning committee members should expect to commit 3-5 hours per month including at least one monthly meeting from March to November. The committee, broken into teams, is responsible for program planning, venue logistics, advertising, sponsor solicitation, fundraising, peace awards, and more as needed.
As a member of the Annual Gathering planning team, familiarity with Google Docs and Sheets is required. Experience in event planning, fundraising, social media, marketing and/or ticket sales are highly desired. Volunteers should also have a passion for peace and justice and support the mission of IJPC.
