    March 29, 2018 / By Heather Smith, Peace with Justice Coordinator

    Peace with Justice Grant applications are being accepted through April 30, 2018. The application can be found here. Please read the information included and fill out application completely.

    The Peace with Justice Grants are provided by funds collected on Peace with Justice Sunday, one of the six Special Sunday offerings required by the Book of Discipline. Half of all money collected in our conference stays right here to support new ministries that address justice issues. The most recent grants have gone to:

    • Labor-Religion Coalition of NYS - $2000 helped fund the Truth Commission on Poverty gatherings
    • NYS Council of Churches - $2000 to support the Rural-Urban Divide Conference

    If you have any questions, please contact Heather Smith, Conference Peace with Justice Coordinator, at peacewithjustice@unyumc.org.
