Welcome to the UJP Discussion Forum!

UJP wants to hear your ideas about strategy for the peace and justice movement in 2010, and what programs and activities to sponsor.  How can the peace movement be effective during the Obama administration, in the midst of economic recession and continuing wars and occupations?  Education, mass action, congressional lobbying, supporting military families, outreach to progressive organizations -- what will work?  What ideas have you taken away from the meetings and conferences you have attended?  UJP hopes to facilitate a free ranging discussion to help clarify our thought and provide direct

"Trump Global Policies and the Threat of WW III" with Mark Solomon

When: Sunday, November 5, 2017, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston

However, are such acts totally at odds with global policies pursued by both past Democratic and Republican administrations? That question demands investigation and action.
