Peace & Justice on the Move
Encounter, Accompany, Listen, Learn
Catholic Mobilizing Network, a member of the Congregation of St. Joseph’s Mission Network, has created a response to racism, sparked by the killing of George Floyd. Hear how Pope Francis and U.S. Bishops have responded to the killing, and how we are called to do the same.
Black Lives Matter
“We are obligated to work for the protection and respect for human life from the first moment of conception to natural death and every stage in between, and thus it is obvious that racism is a pro-life issue. Racism is a sin, and we have to admit that even as Church, we have not been immune to racial bias and the blindness to structures of sin that affect how our own institutions are run.”

Pax Christi LR in the News
Religious leaders in Arkansas express support for protests
Take a Knee Rally, June 6
Faith leaders and religious groups, including Pax Christi Little Rock, joined with other peace partners and the community for protests in response to the death of George Floyd. For those involved with Pax Christi, the recent protests are part of a larger effort that supports pro-life efforts that include quality of life “from the cradle to the grave.”
Nuclear weapons: ‘If you know the entire planet is at risk’
While an outbreak of a virus spreads globally and national issues like health care are being debated, Nobel laureate Dr. Ira Helfand said the “most important issue in the world today” that could take out the human race is something that most people do not think about: nuclear weapons.
Peace Activist of the Year
Dr. Sherry Simon was honored Feb. 8 by Arkansas Coalition for Peace and Justice as its Peace Activist of the Year. Simon received the award at the group’s annual membership meeting in Little Rock.
Peace protest calls attention to morality of U.S. attack
Members from Pax Christi Little Rock raised signs at an anti-war rally in Little Rock Jan. 4, with phrases like, “Wage Peace” “War! What is it good for?” “There is another way” and “No war on Iran” in protest of ongoing conflicts with Iran.
More than ever, we need people who believe in our work for peace through social justice and are willing to help achieve the goal of nonviolence in our world.
