Who We Are

Dominicans for Justice and Peace (Order of Preachers) is a faith-based non-profit and non governmental organization representing the Order of Preachers (Dominicans) to the United Nations (UN). In line with the Order’s mission to bring Good News, the organization is animated by the desire to provide greater capacity to Dominicans (friars, nuns, sisters and lay men and women) around the world to advocate for human rights at the UN level to the benefit of populations in need at the local level. 

The principal objective of Dominicans for Justice and Peace is to deepen the engagement of all Dominicans in finding peaceful solutions to conflicts, in addressing the root causes of various contemporary challenges, in promoting and protecting the human rights of all, and in bringing justice to people whose rights have been violated.
