Peaslee believes in community and building relationships. We are fortunate to have our own community within Peaslee Neighborhood Center that includes seven other non-profit organizations, all of which work for peace and justice:
Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center (IJPC) educates and advocates for peace, challenges unjust local, national, and global systems, and promotes the creation of a nonviolent society. IJPC’s peace program includes non-violence trainings, anti-war organizing, Days of Dialogue and a Truth in Recruiting campaign. The immigration program’s Loving Our Immigrant Neighbor workshop provides information and answers practical questions. Youth Educating Society (YES) educates about the immigration system, provides leadership training for young adult immigrants and connects immigrant advocates within local universities. IJPC works for the abolition of the death penalty in Ohio and beyond. Families that Matter bring together people who have or had loved ones on Ohio’s death row for mutual support and advocacy training. Working with Ohioans to Stop Executions (OTSE), IJPC educates around the death penalty, provides petitions asking for clemency and holds prayer witnesses during each execution.
A Small Group
Ohioans to Stop Executions (OTSE) is actively working to end the death penalty in Ohio through education and advocacy. OTSE is a non-profit engaging community organizations, faith leaders, students, teachers and regular citizens in a thoughtful dialogue about Ohio’s death penalty. OTSE is a unique organization that fosters the relationships between groups and individuals of diverse backgrounds, beliefs and experiences who all share a common goal in the value of abandoning the practice of capital punishment.

The Cincinnati Interfaith Committee for Worker Justice, founded in 1997 by religious leaders, is affiliated with Interfaith Worker Justice. The group organizes and educates to improve wages, benefits and working conditions for workers, especially low-wage workers, and supports collective bargaining rights. CICWJ also provides religious groups with educational resources on work and justice such as studies, workshops and speakers. Each year CICWJ holds the Religion-Labor dinner and the Interfaith Community Breakfast for their on-going educational efforts. The group also works alongside labor groups such as the Justice for Cincinnati Janitors Campaign, the Cincinnati AFC-CIO Labor Council and many others. Through these partnerships, they listen, dialogue and act in response to these workers’ labor needs and concerns.
The Center for Community Change (CCC), a local office at Peaslee of a national organization, seeks to empower low-income individuals to improve their communities. Founded in 1968 to honor the values and life of Robert F. Kennedy, the mission of CCC is to build power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color, to have significant impact in improving their communities, and the policies and institutions that affect their lives. The group believes that everyone has a voice and that it’s only together that we can make changes. The group focuses on immigration, housing, retirement security and jobs.
