Resource center to educate the community and engage them in actions related to nonviolence, social justice and environmental sustainability. As part of our work we offer a fair trade store to give consumers a choice in shopping and educate about the impact of every dollar. We also have a library, a shared dish pantry to decrease the use of paper goods, a community meeting space and we sponsor about 100 events throughout the year.
The JRPC provides its employees with a living wage. We support Fair Trade which provides a living for many people/villages in the third world. In addition, many of our products are local and echo the belief in a living wage, the preservation of culture and community and safe and adequate working conditions. In all of our practices we incorporate recycling, reuse and reduction as we make business and purchasing decisions. Our building is an older downtown building and as we make improvements and/or repairs, we are choosing to use eco-friendly products and processes. Environmental stewardship is a key component of peace as identified in our mission statement, so we promote and partner with may such events and organizations locally and across the globe.
