What They’re Saying

Jason Fileta
Editor of Live Justly
“Advocacy is an incredible opportunity for the people of God to not only impact the lives of marginalized people, but to proclaim the truth about who God is. When we seek justice for the oppressed in the public square we are also making a statement about the world as it should be--the way God created it to be, where all creation flourishes in relationship with each other and God. From Moses, Esther, and the Apostle Paul to Dr. King and Dorothy Day God has used people throughout time to proclaim justice, secure justice, and tell the world about God's love. In this spirit, I am excited to contribute to JFM's program, Just Engagement: The Power to Change.”

“I see a real need for this program, Just Engagement: The Power to Change, in our world today. I talk with community members and know that they are passionate about their causes, and truly want to make a difference, but they don't always know how to go about giving public support or recommendations for policy. I love the idea of giving them an opportunity to learn how to advocate in an educated and positive manner. I think this module could be the action piece that they are looking for.”
