Since 1974, 8th Day Center for Justice, a coalition of Catholic religious congregations, has committed to be a critical alternative voice to oppressive systems and to work actively to change those systems. When you make a donation to 8th Day Center for Justice, you become a partner in the work for a more peaceful and just world. Your donation to 8th Day supports social justice efforts, such as:


  • Holding a peace vigil every Tuesday morning in downtown Chicago since September 2001
  • Hosting over 30 years of the Urban Plunge, a week-long immersion, from a spiritual perspective, into the systems and structures that are at the root of injustice today
  • Partnering with grassroots coalitions and organizations, such as School of the Americas Watch (SOAW), to challenge oppressive structures

In all aspects of our work, we commit to developing and sustaining just relationships. 8th Day gladly accepts and appreciates contributions of all amounts from people who share in our mission and vision.

8th Day Center for Justice is a 501(c)(3) organization. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
