    Holiday party 2019


    Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace invites you to join us and celebrate another year of fostering love, compassion, and activism to make this a better world for all. We're honored to have the Rev. James Lawson, an ICUJP founder and a leading proponent of nonviolence, join us to give a special holiday reflection. 

    Please bring a breakfast item or beverage to share. Also, in the holiday spirit, please join us in supporting Get On The Bus and help reunite families! GOTB is a nonprofit program of the Center for Restorative Justice Works that unites children with parents who are incarcerated. Currently, 48 buses bring over 1,100 kids and their caregivers to 14 California prisons near Mother's and Father's Day, at no cost to families.

    • backpacks
    • crayons or colored pencils
    • coloring books for children and adults
    • small games for toddlers and children
