The Commission of Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) focuses the Federation’s attention on specific justice-led issues, recognizing the interconnectedness of all peoples and creation. The Commission provides education, webinars, and resources to help our Franciscan family address issues of human rights, human trafficking, peacemaking and care for creation.
