The Thomas Merton Center (TMC) is a peace and justice non-profit organization in Pittsburgh, PA. Our mission statement reads, “We are people from diverse philosophies and faiths who find common ground in the nonviolent struggle to bring about a more peaceful and just world. We work to raise the moral questions involved in the issues of war, poverty, racism, and oppression.”
The TMC acts as a resource and organizing center for over 30 different projects that range from an anti-war committee, a books-to-prisoners program, a group working on “greening” vacant lots, an effort to fight for sustainable funding for public transit and even a local chapter of the School of the Americas Watch.
