After a July hiatus, we're back with the latest edition of On The Line! Each month, I try to highlight some of what the members of Pax Christi USA are doing to create a world which is more just, peaceful and sustainable in this monthly website feature. I hope you'll check it out today and find inspiration from your partners in this incredible work being done in communities across the country.


Also, yesterday Sr. Patty Chappell, Pax Christi USA's Executive Director, asked me to share with you an action alert from regarding the fatal shooting of 18 year old Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO by police. She signed onto this alert and is asking for others to consider signing too. Former and current PCART members and folks in those areas where Communities of Color workshops were held this past summer might be particularly interested in supporting this.
