What is JPIC?

The Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Commission (JPICC) is a permanent commission of the AMRSP mandated to act on and mobilize members of Religious Congregations and all the Mission Partners in response to urgent, pressing and common issues affecting all sectors such as climate change, migration, good governance, corruption, transparency and other similar advocacies. (AMRSP JPICC Implementing Guidelines, The Mandate (cf Mission Partners’ Manual  #II - 2.3)
 
Breathing life to JPICC’s mandate as a permanent commission of the AMRSP, requires the confluence of three elements to respond as a community of faith: a collective discernment of the often changing signs of the times, a commitment to prophetic Gospel witnessing and the necessity for reflective action.
 
Beginning 2017, the JPICC identified five thematic programs culled from Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudatu Si’s core message of the principles of interconnectedness, JPICC weaves together these five themes:
integral ecology,
  • human rights and solidarity,
  • modern-day slavery and  anti-trafficking in persons,  
  • transformative education for good governance and,
  •  organizational sustainability.
 
Mobilizing the AMRSP network of religious congregations, mission partners and our network of partners takes myriad forms of Eucharistic celebrations,  protest actions, pilgrimages,  processions, discernment gatherings, meetings, fora, conferences, capacity-building immersion and exposures.
 
Reflective actions, are taken in behalf of and with  the vulnerable. Peoples and nature who are endangered,  at risk and  marginalized. They whose access to transformative action may be  limited or constrained.
 
AMRSP JPICC shares in the common mission and heritage for transformative change.
