PJI Journal Now Available

This just in! The latest Peace and Justice Institute (PJI) publication has dropped — with a redesigned format and a brand new name. Now coined the Peace and Justice Institute Journal, the bi-annual magazine features reflective and inspiring stories, captures impactful community events and showcases PJI’s commitment to and research in fostering peace and justice within the Central Florida Community and beyond.

Commenting on the name change, Peace and Justice Institute Director Rachel Allen said, “The name Journal has a double meaning for PJI. A journal is an important tool for many reflective practitioners as it supports mindfulness and emotional intelligence. Likewise, journal denotes an academic journal in which scholarship is published. As PJI moves in the direction of research, the journal provides a venue to impart knowledge and lessons learned to the larger field of community building, peace and justice studies throughout the globe.”

This issue, in particular, features powerful features about the 1920 Ocoee Massacre, a review of the Spring term, an article on the realities of voter suppression and so much more.
