The Indiana Peace & Justice Network (IPJN) is a grassroots coalition of peace and social justice activists and supporters from throughout the state of Indiana. Through our official website and discussion list IPJN provides Hoosier peacemakers a place in which to share ideas, strategies, resources and working tools to help build a more peaceful and just world, on both the local and national level.
IPJN was founded at a meeting in West Lafayette in the fall of 2002 where about 30 people from around the state met for the first time. We hope to serve the broader peace and justice community by:
1) Coordinating state-wide events
2) Sharing information and resources
3) Mobilizing Indiana residents for regional and national events
