The Democracy Institute

Student Initiative for Justice Mission and Goals

The Student Initiative for Justice, a body affiliated with The Democracy Institute at Ahimsa Centerepitomizes our commitment to engaging the brightest, youngest minds on the most decisive questions facing our civic institutions and human future. Through regular dialogues on campus between faculty, students, and educational leaders across CPP campus and the country, the SIJ seeks to engage students who, when they go out into the world, are well prepared to take part in questions that today traverse and cut across debates around technology, climate, law, violence, and rights. The SIJ consolidates the Center’s trans-disciplinary project of reimagining a future for democracy—and global citizenship—without violence.
