Want to Raise A Generation of Children Who are Faithful, Informed and Brave About Facing the Crisis of Race and Poverty in America Today?
Faith-based response-ability taking to bring about a moral revival of values in our nation is something which young and old alike can understand and act on NOW! The five foundational principles of the new Jubilee Justice Platform put forth by today’s Poor People’s Campaign can guide our way.
Rev. Dr. William Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis , Co-Chairs of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, understand that at the core of the ministry of Jesus (who was himself rejected and poor) was and is justice and compassion for those whom society’s systems of power reject and a movement for wholeness in a broken world. We are called to follow in his footsteps in whatever everyday, simple steps we can take.
We invite you to Explore Each Principle through:
Scripture resources and questions for discussion.
Ideas for both at-home and community action which help families support the Moral Jubilee Justice Platform each in their own way.
Note: While the majority of these resources are appropriate for elementary and middle school age and activist kinship caregivers who seek to support of the Poor People’s Campaign, these resources can also be adapted to a progressive, broadly-graded faith formation setting as well.
