With reference to goal # 16 Peace Justice & strong institutions:
1.The weekly event Coffee Cake & True Islam is working towards combating Islamophobia and building ties with the community. By providing a discussion platform/forum, the public is invited to ask any question on Islam and dispel their misconceptions and fear of Islam.
2. The ladies interfaith discussion group has built bridges across the Jewish, Christian and Muslim Communities by monthly dialogue on specific aspects of all three faiths. The growing popularity of this group is testimony to its non judgemental and genuine effort to understand the three religions by women who are passionate about what they believe in.

Despite the availability of technical solutions, over a billion people are still without any form of electricity and 3 billion people still cook over open fires.
This project emphasizes practical power: renewable, locally-sourced, sustainable energy solutions which lift people out of poverty.
- Energy enables people to work their way out of poverty.
- Energy provides better access to education and other basic services.
- Energy improves health and wellbeing, especially for women and children.
The Sustainable Living Project is committed to sustainable energy because we know from our work on the ground that renewable energy sources are a powerful solution to many of the world’s greatest challenges, such as building sustainable communities, ending poverty, increasing access to healthcare, and more.
I Am Clean Energy is focused around a greener source of energy, one that will benefit everybody and leave a smaller footprint for generations to come.
We believe that patterns and types of energy production and consumption can change over to increased efficiency while maintaining and enhancing the quality of life for all people of the middle east. Moving toward a green economy will decrease per capita consumption of oil, increase oil exports, and decrease pollutants in the air, water, and soil. The environment will be cleaner, the food supply will be healthier for all, and the people of the middle east will be happier.
Crime Prevention is the anticipation, recognition, and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it!

The Catholic Social Action Office and Commission empower Catholics in the Archdiocese to celebrate and live out the Gospel call for life, human dignity, and care for God’s creation through Catholic Social Teaching formation, organized social ministries, and opportunities for public advocacy and action. We have organized ministries for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, Catholic Relief Services, and Catholic Rural Life Conference as well as for such current issues as respect life, immigration, care for God’s creation, poverty, international peace, and more. The office also coordinates and provides staff support to regional justice collaborative networks of parishes and other Catholic organizations: the Cincinnati-area Advocates for Justice Parish Collaborative, Dayton-area Weavers of Justice, and the Springfield Catholic Social Action Committee. The office also serves as an initial point of contact for ecumenical and interfaith relations for the Archdiocese.
