Each Monday, Blue Stallion Brewing donates 10% of taproom sales to local non-profits. This week’s non-profit is Central Kentucky Council for Peace and Justice.
The CKCPJ is a coalition of peacemaking groups and individuals, incorporated in 1984 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
CKCPJ’s primary objectives are to:
- Provide members and the community with resources and information about peace and justice issues;
- Mobilize, coordinate, and support activities and actions focused on peace and justice issues; and,
- Facilitate and encourage communication and interchange of ideas among our members and within the community.
The Council supports events organized by our member organizations or any other local group whose event is consistent with our principles. We participate by co-sponsoring with funding, in-kind contributions and publicity for events and opportunities within the local and regional progressive community. Our goal is to build coalitions and to distribute information as widely as possible because we believe cooperation and collaboration requires sharing knowledge and increasing understanding. We choose the specific pieces of legislation for which we lobby based on our dedication to: nonviolent solutions to conflict; equitable distribution of the world’s resources; respect and human rights for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disabilities, or religious, political, and philosophical belief; and our desire to achieve a safe, diverse, and sustainable environment
