The Thomas Merton Center

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: April 3, 2014, 7:46 PM

Description

The Thomas Merton Center's mission is to build a consciousness of values and to raise the moral questions involved in the issues of war, poverty, racism, classism, economic justice, human rights, and environmental justice. TMC engages people of diverse philosophies and faiths who find common ground in the nonviolent struggle to bring about a more peaceful and just world.

The Thomas Merton Center began in 1972 to protest the continuation of the war in Vietnam. Through the years, the Center has educated and organized against world and local hunger, exploitation of workers, militarism, and racial discrimination in Pittsburgh. We constantly work to raise the moral questions involved in the issues of war, poverty, racism, and oppression.

With over 25 active projects and campaigns, the Center serves as a hub for the social justice community of Western Pennsylvania and is a resource for dozens of social justice and peace groups in the region. Our monthly newspaper, the New People, is a key source of information to activists, our website provides an up-to-date action calendar, and an electronic update is sent out to over 1,500 supporters weekly.
