Justice & Peace

Our Passion for Justice

The engaged Christian life.

Our Corporate Stances

We are connected to our Dominican sisters and brothers worldwide, and we share common concerns and commit to collaborative action for the protection of human rights, climate justice, economic rights, and peace and security.

Learn more about each of these justice concerns and our corporate stances related to them here.

We believe preaching the gospel of justice is integral to our Dominican vocation. For that reason we choose on occasion to make public corporate statements about these important social concerns. Each corporate stance we've taken since our first one in 1994 has been affirmed by at least two-thirds of those who are able to vote.

In our Dominican tradition, the process of affirmation is preceded by communal study, dialog, and prayer.
