About Us

The principle emphasis of the Peace with Justice Committee of the United Methodist California-Pacific Annual Conference is to work collaboratively with local congregations and ministries for advocacy and action on peace with justice related issues. The committee also has an ongoing program which provides financial support for local projects.  

CAL-PAC COMMITTEE FORMING THREE NEW TASK FORCES
In addition to its ongoing Immigration Task Force, the Cal-Pac Peace with Justice Committee is in the process of establishing three new issue oriented task forces relating to:

Israel/Palestine;
Peace/Not War; and
Nuclear Issues 

Anyone wishing to serve on one of these Peace with Justice Committee  task forces should contact the committee chair, The Rev. Louis Chase at tesfaye81@yahoo.com or Catharine Phillips at the Cal-Pac Conference office cphillips@cal-pac.org
