Callaway Citizens for Peace & Justice: is an interfaith group with Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, and Humanist participants. People with other belief systems are invited to join us. People of good will have many concerns in common, including hunger, peace, justice, homelessness, and poverty. It is our hope that by working together we can reduce the pain and heartbreak of these problems. We may even come to a deeper understanding, and develop greater respect and acceptance of each other. By questioning the speakers and their arguments, we hope to stimulate your questions and dialogue.
