About Our Auction
The Ed Everts Peace & Social Justice Awards Celebration is a yearly tradition at the Peace & Justice Center. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we had to cancel the celebration last March just days before it was scheduled. The event typically includes a silent auction. We have decided to move forward with it online.
When it is safe to gather, we will find a way to celebrate the recipients of our award: Coalition for Ethnic and Social Equity in Schools and Wendy Coe (PJC co-founder and recently retired Operations Manager of 41 years).
In the meantime, we have dozens of amazing items to auction! We thank all the local artists, businesses, and organizations who donated their products and services. We would love to see them go to folks who want to support our work in this way.
This auction is important to our yearly fundraising goals. Your bids will be used to ensure the Peace & Justice Center continues all our racial justice, fair trade, and peace work programs in this time of civil and political unrest.
Thank you to our community for your support in this difficult time. We are truly honored to work for and with folxs like you!
About Peace & Justice Center
Since society is an all-encompassing system, changing oppressive structures requires changing the culture itself. The premise of Peace & Justice Center’s work is that our political, social, and economic institutions were built on principles that favored some (male, white, typically abled, straight, cis-gendered, wealthy, militarily powerful) at the expense of others (women and gender nonconforming people, people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQ2S persons, the 99%, and the nonviolent). These dynamics are embedded in our culture’s DNA.
The purpose of the PJC is to work on the interconnected issues of peace; human rights; and economic, social, and racial justice. The PJC is committed to raising awareness of these issues, redressing the harms of generational oppression, and equipping people with tools to lead viable social change movements that include and empower all people. Our ultimate goal is to create a peaceful and just world. To achieve this, the PJC utilizes education, leadership development, and community-building to reach organizations, groups, activists, institutions, and the general public
