We're dedicated to...

Welcome ~

… to the website of Just World Educational, a feisty non-profit headquartered in Charlottesville, Virginia that provides educational resources and experiences that critically examine the United States’ role in the world, focusing on issues of war, peace, and justice and with particular attention to the Middle East.

We ran three big, live-event projects in Fall 2017– and we still welcome funding support for the big plans we have for 2018!

The first of our Fall projects was a speaking tour titled “Memories of Algeria’s Freedom Struggle”, featuring the legendary Algerian moudjahida Zohra Drif.

Another project, that started in early October, is an ongoing speaker series that explores the ties between militarism and environmental harm. This speaker series features longtime environmental activist/journalist Gar Smith and many of his colleagues.

The third big live-event project, that started in late November, explores the relationship between the United States and the UN. It features veteran UN-watcher Ian Williams.

Our big campaign over Summer 2017 was an online informational campaign about the situation in Gaza, Palestine. 

This website itself is also one of our significant projects. It is– and will always be– a work in progress! Send us your feedback and ideas for how to make it more useful and effective!

… And please join us in building a more just and peaceable world!

Executive President.
