Jesus was an advocate for social justice. So when we work on behalf of farmworkers and recent immigrants, those living in poverty or with disabilities, children and the elderly, we are doing what Jesus did.
But we can't do this alone. So find a friend and start praying, find a pen and start writing, find a shovel and start gardening, find a bullhorn and start shouting. Change never comes easy.
Since its founding in 1935, the Council has been applying pressure to make the arc of the moral universe bend just a little bit more toward justice. While it is certain that much has been accomplished in these nearly 85 years, there is still much work to be done. During the 40 days of Lent we invite you on a journey with us to justice.
