PEACE Justice Ministry

PEACE is the Polk Ecumenical Action Council for Empowerment

PEACE is a congregation-based direct-action organization founded in 2001 that engages diverse, Polk County congregations in doing justice by identifying the root causes of community problems and taking action.

PEACE is a multiracial, interdenominational, nonpartisan 501(c)3 nonprofit. We are devoted to identifying problems facing the community of Polk County. We are a direct action organization that proposes policy solutions to public officials in order to get to the root causes of community problems.

First United Methodist is proud to join with more than 20 other congregations in Polk to follow the biblical call to do justice.
