About Us

Who We Are

The PRC is a membership organization and community clearinghouse of information on peace and social justice issues and activities. Through our active programs and by promoting networking among peace-related organizations, offering nonviolent alternatives to conflict resolution and carrying on a program of peace education, we provide an ongoing presence throughout San Diego County.

Founded in 1980 by six local organizations committed to peace, the Peace Resource Center now has over 40 member organizations (listed here) and hundreds of individual and family members.

We are guided by the principles of nonviolence, tolerance, compassion and respect for diversity. Membership is open to all individuals and organizations concerned about peace with justice and the need to live by these principles.
