One of the goals of the Dominican Sisters International Confederation (DSIC) is to foster a more compassionate world order through the promotion of peace and justice, integrity of creation and human rights, especially the rights of women. This work is promoted and carried out by the international promoter for Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC). The international coordinator works with five continental justice promoters. Sr. Philomena Benedict Le Gall is the justice and peace promoter for Europe and the Middle-East. Their work includes information sharing, formation, advocacy training and other forms of social action with and on behalf of Dominican sisters worldwide.

As the Continental Justice and Peace promoter for Europe Sr Philomena aims at supporting collaboration across congregations of sisters as well as with the friars and lay Dominicans in order to meet the following priorities: protection and regularisation of the legal status of migrants, fight against war and poverty, equal opportunity of work and education for all, care for the environment.
