Resources for 2018 Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival

Justice. If you have a police officer or lawyer in the family, chances are you think of this word in connection with law enforcement, but there are other ways to use this word. One of Webster’s definitions is “the principle or ideal of right action: righteousness.”

In the spring of 2012, a number of ministries (known as the Justice Table – see below for list) along with our church-wide pro-reconciliation/anti-racism initiative agreed to focus collaborative efforts around four major areas:

In 2018, several of the justice ministries associated with the Disciples formed a grass-roots style partnership via the Disciples Public Presence Facebook group. Included are many of the members of the former justice table as well as newer interest groups. Included are Disciples Women, Green Chalice, Refugee & Immigration Ministries along with other Disciples Home Missions entities, Global Ministries, Disciples Alliance Q, Disciples Peace Fellowship, National Benevolent Association, Disciples Center for Public Witness, Reconciliation Ministry, Disciples Justice and Action Network, Center for Indigenous Ministries, and Disciples Justice for Children.
