The Peninsula Peace and Justice Center is the area’s  leading grassroots voice for peace, justice & human rights.

“The Peninsula Peace and Justice Center has been one of the most effective of the activist groups.” – Prof. Noam Chomsky

We believe democracy occurs every day – when people actively participate. Based in Palo Alto, we present the world’s leading progressive speakers, produce a free monthly forum, and when needed, organize demonstrations, vigils, and petition campaigns. Since 1981, we’ve been the local face of effective grassroots action.
