The PJC is committed to raising awareness of these issues, redressing multiple forms of oppression, and equipping people with tools to lead viable social change movements that include and empower all people. To achieve these goals, the PJC utilizes education, leadership development, and community-building to reach organizations, groups, activists, institutions, and the general public.
