Promoters General for Justice and Peace
Many Dominicans throughout history have understood that the mission of preaching the Gospel goes directly to the defense of human dignity. The Jubilee is an opportunity to remember the testimony of these brothers and sisters, and to reaffirm the commitment of the Order to the promotion of human rights. The General Chapter of Trogir asked that, within the activities of the Jubilee Year, there will be an event dedicated to the legacy of Fray Francisco de Vitoria and the implications of his thought for the challenges posed by human rights today (ACG Trogir 61, 7).
This event will also be an opportunity to make known and promote the work of many brothers and sisters accompanied by two instances of the worldwide Order: the Delegation of the Order to the United Nations, and the "Salamanca Process" that has been developing in several provinces and Dominican universities.
