TMC works to build a consciousness of values and to raise the moral questions involved in the issues of war, poverty, racism, classism, economic justice, human rights, and environmental justice. TMC engages people of diverse philosophies and faiths who find common ground in the nonviolent struggle to bring about a more peaceful and just world.
TMC strives to be a coalition-building organization that follows the principles of Thomas Merton and other great architects of non-violent resistance. We encourage people to learn, grow, and work together in the pursuit of social justice and peace to ensure the dignity and well being of all human beings. We strive to achieve this vision in a supportive, nurturing and facilitative manner.
