Founded by 5 women religious communities in 1985, IJPC educates and advocates on four core issues – abolition of the death penalty, human trafficking, comprehensive immigration reform, and peace and non-violence. The center coordinates speaker panels, core issue committees, and community dialogues as well as provides opportunities for education and advocacy to school groups, churches, and community members. This volunteer will be the first Louise Akers Fellow. The volunteer fellow will assist in creating and leading a certificate in peace promotion for the residents of Greater Cincinnati. They will also research and design educational materials on the core issues; plan events, programs, rallies, and prayer services; and interface with various collaborating groups.
