Central Kentucky Council for Peace and Justice

  . . .  thinking globally, working locally in central Kentucky, for a different world

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s impassioned call for continued struggle echoes through the decades, encouraging dedicated people of goodwill to press on, helping bend that arc. In the spirit of shared labor toward common causes, the Voices for Peace and Justice 2014 event series presents a rich collaboration of organizations.
In this year's VOICES event series, CKCPJ's 2014 Voices for Peace and Justice focus on raising awareness for a living wage - and passing legislation to raise minimum wage at the local or regional level.
