20th Anniversary Co-sponsorship

ICUJP 20th Anniversary

Thank you for your interest in becoming a sponsor of ICUJP's anniversary event. The deadline to purchase sponsorships unfortunately has passed. If you would like to make a donation instead, please visit https://ICUJP20th.eventbrite.com. Thank you for your support!


Twenty years ago, days after the devastating 9/11 attacks, the late Rev. George F. Regas brought together Christians, Jews, Muslims, Quakers, humanists and people of many other beliefs to found Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace. Acutely aware that this moment posed a dire threat to peace and justice, George knew instinctively that peacemakers needed 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 speakers from all over the world
  • organized mass demonstrations, vigils, and acts of civil disobedience
  • presented numerous conferences and webinars
  • held an annual Close Guantanamo rally
  • sent many delegations to meet with elected officials
  • issued statements, petitions, and policy papers on a wide range of international and domestic issues
  • provided scholarships to young peace activists
  • supported our allies in the cause of peace and racial and economic justice
  • and provided a loving and safe home for all who are working toward a peaceful, compassionate nation and world that offer liberty, opportunity and justice for all.

Please join us in person or online to celebrate ICUJP's 20th Anniversary, honoring George's life and legacy, and recognizing our colleagues in peace and justice with the 2021 George F. Regas Courageous Peacemaker Awards

ICUJP operates largely as a volunteer organization with a small part-time paid staff.  For 20 years, we've carried out Rev. Regas's vision through the generosity of individuals and organizations like you. As with many other nonprofits, the Covid pandemic has hampered our ability to raise donations.  The annual Peacemaker Awards event is our primary fundraising activity of the year.  We're eager to sustain - and expand - our work.  We are committed to doing that with your generous help.
