What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Build Community Power and Practice Democracy

Washtenaw County People’s Budget for Dignity & Justice: ICPJ researches and shares information about the county budget process & implications for the community. We organize community conversations to identify & advocate for grassroots needs rather than policing and incarceration. Currently, more than 70% of the Washtenaw Budget is spent on policing, courts, and incarceration.

ICPJ’s Voters Organizing Through Engagement (VOTE) Caucus: Expanding upon past engagement efforts, ICPJ provides voter education, focused with a racial & economic justice lens. Our two-year voter engagement plan includes training facilitators to host Compassionate Community Conversations to build understanding between those with different views. The VOTE Caucus organizes to hold elected officials accountable to build toward equity and racial & economic justice.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are an interfaith and intergenerational collaborative network of individuals and organizations who share values of peace and justice. We continually strive to be more multi-racial and intersectional so we can all be our authentic selves. In pursuit of building this space together, we center anti-racism as well as the perspectives of feminism, anti-classism, and spirituality in its multiple forms.

While our network is diverse in our focus areas, lived experiences, and ways of doing the work, we share values that bind us together. We believe our actions show our values so we practice radical love in all we do. We aim to change structural systems by focusing on the interconnected root causes that continue the status quo. This means recognizing the self-determination of all peoples and the interdependence of all species. This means working to eradicate inequity in the large and small ways while being mindful of our collective and individual impact.

We will listen more, advocate for human rights, empower people to create their own change, proactively share our resources, and act with intention and humility. As we dismantle white supremacy and other oppressive power systems, we will show care for one another. As we reform the whole justice system, we will respect and value others. As we oppose military repression, occupation, and exploitation, we will respect our ecosystem.

We invite you to join us in these practices so we may achieve peace and justice for all:

* Reject systematic poverty and violence
* Invite the most impacted to help guide our work
* Build a system of equity
* Learn about the power structure
* Practice physical and emotional nonviolence
* Seek common ground for dialogue and understanding
* Recognize your privilege and how you are accountable to others
* Encourage multiple strategies in alignment with one another
* Promote truth & reconciliation with empathy for yourself and others
* Act locally too!
