Peace with justice
Pacem in Terris (Latin for “Peace on Earth”) is a 46-year-old, interfaith, independent, member-supported non-profit organization based in Wilmington, Delaware. Its work embodies a creative mix of hope and vision with pragmatic education and positive action.
Pacem in Terris (Latin for “Peace on Earth”) was founded by an interfaith group or clergy, business leaders and academics (Rabbi Herbert Drooz, Rabbi Jacob Kraft, Rev. Albert Nielson, Msgr. Thomas Reese, Richard Rhoades, and Charles Robinson) in Wilmington, Delaware in 1967. For 46 years it has facilitated the active participation of people and organizations on issues and projects relevant to the quest for peace, justice, and sustainability throughout the world. It is an independent, member-supported non-profit organization whose work embodies a creative mix of hope and vision with pragmatic education and positive action.
The Pardons Project, a restorative justice project of Delaware Pacem in Terris in collaboration with the Delaware Center for Justice, works to eradicate civil barriers to reintegration of ex-prisoners into society by empowering and preparing them to represent themselves before the Board of Pardons. Most of the people who come to the Pardons Project have already begun the process of rehabilitating themselves through counseling, further education, and service to the community.
