“Charity, Justice and God’s Call for Economic Justice” is an interactive workshop that draws on Christian faith teachings that direct us to work for economic justice. The prophet Micah said: “What does the Lord require of us: To love kindness, do justice and walk humbly with our God.” Participants learn about the importance of doing both charity and justice and the key differences between the two. Charity is acts of kindness while justice challenges and correct unfair and unjust power relationships that create exploitation and oppression.
Based in a faith perspective, participants learn about the root causes of the profound shift from a broadly shared prosperity to a prosperity and security that overwhelmingly benefits the wealthy and corporations. The primary goal of the workshop is to connect their faith while actively working for greater economic justice which will create a more economically just and secure nation for all. In doing so, we live our faithful call to “Love kindness, do justice and walk humbly with our God.”
