What we're about

Our group is a proud sponsor of events for the Orange County Poor People's Campaign (OC PPC). In addition, we support the state and nationwide efforts too.

This group serves to unite people from all walks of life in local communities by working together to alleviate the causes of racial, gender, and economic discrimination, demand to end all wars, promote social justice, defend animal rights, and identify environmental issues, while lessening our carbon footprint.

As a Peace Builder, we seek truth, take time to learn/understand, as well as further develop compassion for our self, while cultivating relationships with people from different cultures and backgrounds, including the environment in which we coexist in. We use conflict resolution and civil disobedience as a tool to overcome differences, not the use of violence.

What to expect from this group. Discussions, lectures, book club meetings, activist training, volunteer opportunities, protests, rallies, demonstrations, field trips to explore the environment, museums, art galleries, and documentaries/movies, plus, conferences, workshops, art activism, and so-on.

Upcoming events (4+)

Housing is a Human Right: Collaboration & Execution

Online event

Stand with us as we fight for justice for people experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness.

Homelessness is a public health issue and a humanitarian crisis in OC, but the county spends none of its own growing budget on housing to end it. Instead, the Board of Supervisors increase funding for the sheriff’s department and increase policing the symptoms of the problem rather than treating the cause of the problem. Meanwhile, our local governments criminalize the necessary act of sleeping in public, even though the county’s dire shortage of affordable housing, services, and program space means that many people literally have nowhere else to live. Mentally and physically disabled, and economically disadvantaged citizens end up in jail—merely for the “crime” of being too poor to afford any kind of home in one of the most expensive housing markets in the nation.

THIS GROUP MEETS EVERY MONDAY
