Voices for Justice

Let your voice be heard.

Get involved two ways:

    1. Join a leadership team that provides resources and tools to empower our community to work for justice through education and formation.  

    2. Join an e-network and receive one or two e-mails each month inviting you to contact your elected officials about justice issues relevant to our community. You’ll also learn about upcoming justice activities related to our advocacy work.
