Welcome to
The San Diego Friends Center
A Center for Peace, Social Justice and Spiritual Growth

The Friends Center will bring together individuals and groups in the San Diego community working for peace and social justice and a sustainable environment in the San Diego community.

Floor plan: The Friends Meeting Room will be used for worship and community meetings. The AFSC and Peace Resource Center will each have their offices in the building’s two wings.

Through the use of conflict resolution tools, community peacemaking activities and collaboration for nonviolent social change, the Friends Center will help make peace an achievable goal.

The Friends Center—creating peace through collaboration and the integration of people, tools and creativity.

The Friends Center is a unique collaboration between two historic peace churches and two well-established and respected non-profit organizations in the San Diego area:

The Friends Center will be an enduring visual statement of the four partners’ dedication to advancing peace, social justice and spiritual growth. And, as an environmentally-sound “green” building, it will be a witness to their commitment to living in peace with the environment and to wise stewardship of the earth’s resources. Built and operated in collaboration, the building will daily demonstrate how organizations with common values can share resources and work together to create new models for social change.

The Friends Center is being built primarily by volunteers and many building materials have been donated by environmentally-friendly firms. To get involved, please check out the other sections of this website!
