Students for Peace and Justice provides a space for social and political engagement through transformative action. If we consider what we do in the world to be—at least in part—an active, faithful response to injustice, oppression, violence, and dehumanization in the world, then collaboration in the form of resistance, solidarity, advocacy and prophecy is a good place to begin.

Through reflecting on our action, we inform our theology.

As a group, we seek to bring together diverse perspectives to inform each other where action is needed and how we can best participate and support each other. We meet twice a month for intentional community in addition to participating in social justice actions.

Building on the Gospel imperatives to love our enemies and Union's legacy of creative, radical resistance to imperial dependence on war, violence, consumerism, greed, and general neglect for human rights, Students for Peace and Justice is committed to being a voice in the city and in the world, through its action to bring about positive change.
