Collaborations

Creation Care Network
Creation Care Network logo

The Creation Care Network (CCN) was born from the inspiration sparked by Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical “Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home”.  Network events over the years have gathered the faithful of the Archdiocese of Seattle for inspiration, education, and advocacy around Francis’ call to heed the “. . . cry of earth and cry of the poor.” Our network is made up of parishes and organizations across Western Washington committed to working for environmental justice.

Collaborative Organizing for Racial Equity
Jesuits West Collaborative Organizing for Racial Equity

Over two years ago Jesuits West began an initiative called the “Faith Doing Justice Discernment Series” that gathered Jesuit works in regional teams to discern new ways of collaboration and to ask the question: How can we as a network flex our Jesuit muscle to create social change? After the discernment series the Collaborative Organizing for Racial Equity was formed. The Seattle CORE group, which IPJC helps to convene, is committed to Restorative Justice. We have hosted a number of events to learn more about restorative justice and take action to create a more just carceral system.

Solidarity With The Philippines

IPJC is a member of the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP) and we have officially endorsed the Philippine Human Rights Act (PHRA)!  We stand with our Filipino siblings as we resist the oppressive and violent Duterte regime and denounce the U.S. government’s complicity in these actions by continuing to fund the administration. Join us to stand up for human rights in the Philippines. Learn more here. 

Racial Solidarity Network

We are a grassroots network from North Seattle Deanery Catholic parishes who are collaborating to promote awareness, education, and action about systemic racism in our culture.  We meet regularly to share resources and to plan together for this purpose.
