One of the ways Augustine promotes justice is by working alongside other organizations in our community. Please click on the links below to learn more about any of these partners.

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL

Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people dedicated to the protection and promotion of human rights. It takes action to free prisoners of conscience; protect refugees; abolish the death penalty; and end political killings, “disappearances,” torture, and other grave human rights abuses. It also promotes the full range of human rights of all people everywhere. Amnesty International impartially researches and exposes specific violations, then mobilizes public pressure to stop these violations. Its work is based on international human rights standards, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Amnesty International is an independent, democratic and self-governing movement, funded by its supporters around the world.

PROJECT PEACEMAKERS

The Winnipeg chapter of Project Ploughshares, Project Peacemakers is a body of people who are working for peace from a faith perspective. They believe that peace is more than the absence of war. A peaceful society is one which is just and where all people are free to strive for wholeness. Project Peacemakers tries to create a peaceful society by motivating and educating the community.

We believe in a world that can love, learn and liberate. Our faith calls us to action for peace, against violence, and against greed (especially in its globalized corporate form). We are in solidarity with all who share this vision.
