Chairperson CJPCThe Catholic Justice and Peace Commission (CJPC) in Kenya was formed in 1988 as the executive arm of the Kenya Episcopal Conference (KEC) on matters of peace and justice. The CJPC works to fulfil one of KEC objectives, that is, to promote justice and challenge oppressive structures in society.

 

CJPC Homa Bay was set up in 1993 at the inception of the Catholic Diocese of Homa Bay. The Commission aims at empowering the communities in the Diocese on Right based approaches and to address emerging conflicts, notably intra-clan conflicts, such as in Kuria East and periodic inter ethnic conflicts in and around the Diocese. CJPC also aims at empowering the people of the Diocese on peace building initiatives and effective response to disaster occurrences.
