Peace & Justice
Bob Luitweiler believed that for the diverse populations of our planet to find common ground, to grow, and to thrive in harmony with one another, cross-cultural understanding was necessary. He founded Servas to promote and enable such intentional, constructive social-interaction.
Servas intentionally brings people together. We covenant with one another to advance efforts to creating a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world.
Nationally, we advocate for racial, social, and environmental justice and equality. This is Servas’ underlying raison d’etre: one conversation at a time.
Given the global nature of the environment we face, Peacemaking necessarily involves not just avoiding international military conflicts, but also promoting international cooperation in order to effectively address the existential threats of the climate change, wars, and pandemics.
The P&J Committee activities are carried out by various work-groups that coordinate with work-groups of other committees.
Active P&J work-groups include:
We are always open to new initiatives and welcome new volunteers!
