PPF Endorses Movement for Black Lives Platform

The platform, released in early August, 2016, outlines local, state, and federal policy demands with outlines of the problems in the US, proposed solutions, specific actions, examples of model legislation when it exists, resources, and lists of organizations and groups that are already working on particular issues. The demands cover a wide variety of intersecting issues, all of which are also of concern to the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship and our mission to opposing war in all its forms.

PPF Signs On to Interfaith Letter Supporting Temporary Protected Status for Immigrants from the Northern Triangle

As faith leaders and faith-based organizations from many different traditions, we write out of grave concern for the dramatically escalating violence that has precipitated a humanitarian crisis of refugees fleeing El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras (an area known as the “Northern Triangle”). Together, we call on the U.S. government to grant Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to those in the U.S. who have fled El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras and immediately cease detaining and deporting children, families, and individuals from these families seeking protection here.

Letter from German Zarate on Colombia

I am happy and very hopeful because of what is happening in La Habana. Although the signing of the end of the armed conflict between the government of Colombia and the FARC-EP doesn’t guarantee peace, the possibility that one of the armed groups disarms is a great reason for joy and hope. The task that remains for us is to incorporate this experience of peace with the other guerrilla group, ELN.
