Peace Dale Congregational Church is dedicated to supporting issues of social justice in our community and our world. We are joining with other faith communities in fulfilling our moral responsibility in a variety of areas, such as climate change, housing and shelter, poverty and hunger, racial and gender equity, domestic violence, and gun violence.
Some examples of our work to date include:
Working with RI Interfaith Power and Light and with Climate Action Rhode Island in support of a healthy environment and in response to climate change.
Addressing issues of housing and homelessness through our work with the Welcome House, Habitat for Humanity, Neighbors Helping Neighbors RI, PICA, and our own shelter at the church.
Fighting poverty and hunger through our work with the Jonnycake Center, the RIUCC Haiti Task Force, and our own Peace Dale Congregational Church community dinner table.
Addressing issues of racial and gender equity by supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, the Domestic Violence Resource Center of South County, and the Pride celebrations in support of the LGBTQ+ community.
Supporting our youth at the March for Our Lives to address gun violence in our country.
