Who We Are:
Pax Christi USA, Illinois is a Region of Pax Christi USA (PCUSA), which is a section of Pax Christi International (PCI). Grounded in Catholic Social Teaching, Pax Christi USA, Illinois is an inclusive membership organization that rejects war, preparation for war, every form of violence and domination, and personal and systemic racism. Ultimately, we are a Catholic peace and justice movement that seeks to model the Peace of Christ in our witness to the mandate of the nonviolence of the Cross.
What We Do:
· Guided by the spirituality of nonviolence, we advocate and provide leadership for disarmament, demilitarization and reconciliation with justice, inclusiveness, economic and interracial justice, human rights and care of creation.
· We strive through prayer, study and action to be attentive to the interrelatedness of the key issues stated above and, in our response, to be conscious of their impact on the world community.
· We work to align our organizational structures, policies, and practices with our intent to be an anti-racist, multicultural Catholic movement for peace with justice.
A more peaceful, just, and sustainable world through the efforts of our members and in collaboration with other groups.
