Peace and Justice Institute


The Peace and Justice Institute aims to empower people to take action by providing resources to support the culture of peace. As part of these resources, you will find the following:

  • A Library Resource Guide which is a collection of books and articles in the field of Peace and Justice as compiled by our Valencia Libraries.

  • Consultants who have served to lay the foundational philosophies and teachings of PJI. Our consultants have been invaluable in guiding our work and serving as mentors to so many of us.

  • Community partners who support the initiatives of the PJI, provide resources and education to enhance our efforts, and collaborate to build the culture of peace and justice.

  • Terminology related to Peace and Justice studies.

  • What We Are Reading, a list of books that have deeply informed our work.
