North American Promoters of Justice, Peace and Care of Creation

Dominican Call to Justice: 2007

Dominicans around the United States are deeply concerned for issues of peace and justice in this country and around the world. The justice effort of the Dominican Order is organized through an international commission and Domincans in the United States participate in that worldwide network.

The Dominican Call toJustice document describes the most significant issues of justice and peace for North American Dominicans. It is updated annually. Use the links on the left to learn more about the issues we work on. They include: Global Warming, HIV/AIDS in Africa, Columbia, the death penalty, disarmament, the war in Iraq and the conflict in Israel and Palestine. Human trafficking and the issues of migration, labor and fair trade complete the list of concerns. You will also find material about Domincian presence at the United Nations in New York and the UN Human Rights Commmission in Geneva.

The Call to Justice document represents the work of justice and peace promoters in the United States and Canada. Justice promoters in each congregation and province advocate on a number of issues in collaboration with lots of other groups through political, economic and civic processes.

The care of creation is the context out of which flows all that we do as Dominican Justice Promoters. Read the United Nations Earth Charter (PDF) for background information. (Read the Earth Charter in Spanish)

These pages will be updated as the Dominican Call to Action document is revised.
