Peace and Justice Alliance - Making Judge a Better Place!

If you want to make a difference at Judge, then come to Room 104 this Friday and be a part of the Peace and Justice Alliance!

Ten years ago, Dr. Brinkman started the Multi-Cultural Club when some students approached her with the idea. This year, Judge is combining the Multi-Cultural Club with Amnesty International, to form the Peace and Justice Alliance. The co-moderators of this group will be Mr. Lovett and Mrs. Morgan.

The group will focus on building a respectful environment at Judge. "There are so many reasons for people to be divided these days," says Mr. Lovett. "We want to heal wounds and promote a good environment." The group also helps by being an ally to people who are treated unfairly because of their race, gender, or disability. "Ally work is a big part of the club," says Mr. Lovett.
Over the years these two groups have done many great things, not only helping the students at Judge, but other people too. Many of the students in these groups have been honored at the University of Utah and have been on TV and on the radio. By combining these groups, Judge hopes to accomplish many great things.

The first meeting for the Peace and Justice Alliance will be held this Friday, September 5, in Room 104. "All students are welcome to take part in this club," says Mr. Lovett. "You don't need to try out or anything. All you have to do is show up at the meetings."
