Special offering - September 2020



     Launched in 2003, NCP is a small nonprofit organization with a Big Goal: to change the world!   Building a new community of justice and peace for our neighbors and respect for the earth.  They provide resources that challenge us, experiences that change us, and a community that gives us hope. Their focus is environmental sustainability and social justice, both of which are essential for a peaceful human community. NCP considers the spiritual dimension of our lives to be important, and seeks to bring about deep inner change in personal and societal values. However, they welcome and work with anyone who shares our commitment to a world of peace and justice and sustainability.

     They have partnerships around the world, but a primary focus is the USA, where they have a national network of some 11,000 people. There are Sustainable Living Centers in Vermont (coordinator Pete Antos-Ketcham) and Virginia (coordinator Tom Benevento), which put their ideals into action and host visitors, volunteers and interns. And director David Radcliff speaks regularly around the country in schools, colleges, community gatherings and congregations.

     Their partnerships are with grassroots groups in East and Southern Africa (South Sudan, Rwanda, Zambia, the Congo and Malawi); Nepal and Myanmar in South Asia; the Dominican Republic; and native communities in the Ecuadorian Amazon, Alaska and the Dine Reservation in New Mexico.
