JUSTICE (Jesuit University Students Together In Concerned Empowerment) is a Marquette University Student Organization dedicated to education and action surrounding social justice issues. We have led campaigns focusing on fair trade, gender equality, Sudan divestment, worker's rights, and other issues. Each year we hold a Social Justice Teach-In to promote awareness on campus, and send a group to Fort Benning, GA, for the annual School of the Americas Protest and Vigil.

National Declaration of Peace

This Saturday, Sept. 23, Peace Action Wisconsin is hosting a rally/march/and PeaceFest for National Declaration of Peace Day. The rally and march start around noon, with the PeaceFest running from 1:30-4 PM. All of this is being held at Pere Marquette Park--right down on good ol' Kilbourn. JUSTICE has been asked to do some tabling at this event, so I was thinking we should distribute materials about the teach-in. If anyone has an hour or two of their time on Saturday to help with this cause, it would be greatly appreciated. It should be pretty cool--if nothing else, there should be some hilarious, old-school peace-seekers. If you are able to participate, leave a comment for this post (I don't think anyone has done that yet), or email me at You could also just talk to me about it. OK, that's it.
