What We Do

The San José Peace and Justice Center is a resource center and community space that supports and fights for causes promoting peace and justice in the South Bay area. The work of The San José Peace and Justice Center is done by a dedicated group of individuals and organizations that seek to ensure the financial and operational stability of peace and justice movements in the South Bay area.



The Peace and Justice Center offers freely available community space, printing, audio equipment, and other resources. The only way we can do that is with your help.
