JPMT puts the beliefs of our congregation into action through advocacy, community engagement and education. UCP believes in a peaceful society and justice for all of God's children and recognizes the barriers to peace and justice that exist for too many.
The involvements of JPMT vary in their advocacy, but all backed in the understanding that social justice issues are inter-connected (not stand alone). JPMT works to transform unjust conditions within our social system.
