Women’s Justice Circles
The voices of women who are low-income and/or immigrants, women living in crisis and those on the margins are typically not included in organizing for change in a way that meets their needs. The Intercommunity Peace & Justice Center facilitates Justice for Women, which empowers women who are low-income to address the underlying causes of poverty by forming Women’s Justice Circles. To date, we have coordinated over 200 Circles!

There are more than myself who are deeply concerned about misuse of power. By sharing our concerns, observations, and experiences we can be awakened to bring sound change in the future.
Many voices are more powerful than just one in making a difference.
I realized that I am flourishing as ever. It was a very powerful insight. Now I am fully conscious of my power. I feel in complete synchrony with my body, mind, and leadership potential.
It has taken me thirty years to speak up. The emotional scars are still there but someone has to speak up for survivors to have a better recovery process. I was mute but now my turn has come.
