Justice and Peace Action Network

Justice and Witness Ministries responds to the call of Christ through public witness, policy advocacy, issue education, and grassroots empowerment to build a more just, compassionate and inclusive world. The UCC Justice and Peace Action Network (JPANet) is our denomination’s grassroots advocacy network composed of individual members and local UCC congregations across the country. Our work is grounded in General Synod resolutions, and formed by a biblical understanding of prophetic ministry.

Join the network and you will start receiving weekly action alerts, like the ones below.

Tell Congress: Pass the NO BAN Act and the GRACE Act

Three years later, Congress still needs to pass legislation to reverse course on the Muslim, refugee, and asylum bans. Families remain banned from reunification and refugees banned from protection.
