Congregational Justice Gets In-Depth Guidance at 2014 Justice Summit Last Updated on 2014-10-25 15:27:34 The 2014 Justice Summit featured three workshops aimed at tackling some of the trickier issues of congregational justice work. See the descriptions below and download resource materials where available. Weaving Social Justice throughout Congregational Life: This workshop looked beyond the social justice committees in our congregations and explored ways to build social justice into all aspects of congregational life, including children, youth, families and adult faith development.

But student activism alone can’t move Harvard. In the 1980s, it took a solidarity movement from across the country to make Harvard’s administration take campus activism seriously and pull investments from South Africa’s apartheid regime. Divest Harvard will be fasting and holding events throughout the week. Can you call Harvard President Drew Faust at (617) 495-1502 and show her that supporters across the country stand with them? WHAT TO SAY Here’s a sample script you can use: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I live in [CITY, STATE]. I'm calling to tell you to divest Harvard's endowment from fossil fuel corporations. Already your students... More »
