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.

Here's Wednesday's "Other Voices Online" with Pierre Labossiere and Seth Donnelly of Haiti Action Committee. Powerful U.S. corporations have long used Haiti as an offshore sweatshop, leveraging lower wages at home. They have no interest in seeing real democracy take hold in Haiti.
