PJI Principle 9: Speak Your Truth

Monday, June 15, 2020

To help guide us through this time, the Peace and Justice Institute (PJI) has been sharing one Principle for How We Treat Each Other per week. This week, we feature Principle 9: Speak your truth.

In our current environment, which is charged with so much emotion surrounding both racial injustice and COVID-19, we must be brave enough to speak our truth and respect others for sharing their truths as well. The Principles are a powerful tool for authentic conversation that can help us engage in the kind of courageous dialogue needed to actualize positive change.

Click here to read how Josh Bell, part-time faculty, humanities, and PJI interfaith coordinator, reflects on the ninth Principle as he considers how the Principle has positively impacted his life.
