Pursuing Justice and Peace
ICUJP 2023 George F. Regas Courageous Peacemaker Awards

Housing Is A Human Right


Sunday, September 10, 2023 • 1:00-3:00 pm, All-Saints Church, Pasadena 

132 N Euclid Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101

Only days after the devastating 9/11 attacks, the late Rev. George F. Regas brought together Christians, Jews, Muslims, Quakers, humanists and people of many faiths and beliefs to found Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace. Acutely aware that this dire moment posed a grave threat to peace and justice, George knew instinctively that peacemakers needed to create a place to gather, organize, pray, and act together united by the fundamental principle that Religious Communities Must Stop Blessing War and Violence.

Since its founding, ICUJP has remained true to George's vision. Meeting at over 1,000 Friday Forums, ICUJP has heard from speakers from all over the world; organized mass demonstrations, vigils, and acts of civil disobedience; presented numbers conferences and webinars; held an annual Close Guantanamo rally; sent many delegations to meet with elected officials; issued a variety of statements, petitions and policy papers on a wide range of international and domestic issues; provided scholarships to deserving peace activists; supported the work of our allies in the cause of peace and racial and economic justice; and provided a loving, safe, and compassionate home for anyone committed to the struggle to replace war with peace and oppression with justice.

We're delighted to recognize the following remarkable individuals as 2023 George F. Regas Courageous Peacemakers:

ICUJP operates as a largely volunteer organization with a small part-time paid staff. We have survived for over 20 years through the generosity of individuals and organizations like you. Like so many other organizations, our ability to raise donations has been hampered during the COVID pandemic. The annual George F. Regas Courageous Peacemaker Awards event is our primary fundraising activity of the year. We are eager to sustain - and expand - our work. We are committed to doing that with your generous help.

Please become a co-sponsor of Pursuing Justice and Peace. The benefits included at each level of sponsorship are shown below. Please purchase a package and submit a Tribute Ad honoring the life and legacy of Rev. George Regas, or the inspiring work of the extraordinary individuals we are honoring, or the over 20 years of important work done by ICUJP, or all of these in the largest Tribute Ad you can afford.
