Thousands of people across the U.S. are signing the Declaration of Peace pledge, a commitment to take action if Congress does not pass legislation for a comprehensive plan for peace in Iraq by Sept. 21, The International Day of Peace.
The JPIC ministry at St. Francis/31st Street has signed on as an endorser and encourages other Franciscan ministries to add their endorsements.
