Upcoming Tools for Transformation: JustFaith Ministries and Our Programs

Jack Jezreel, M.Div., author and founder of JustFaith will be joined by his colleague Leila Oakley, M.T.S., as they introduce the justice education programs of JustFaith Ministries.

For many years, JustFaith Ministries programs addressing topics ranging from racial justice to environmental care to poverty and nonviolence have impacted the lives of participants and their congregations, leading to deeper commitment and a more vibrant faith. Click here to view our latest video. The pandemic of 2020 dictated that all programming be made available in a virtual format, in addition to an in-person format (when safe and possible).

Please join us to learn what programs JustFaith is offering this year and how to get started.

Acting for Justice Webinars

Your Vote is Your Voice
Thursday, September 29
7:00 pm ET/4:00pm PT

Join us for the second of our two-part collaboration with NETWORK (check out the recording of Part I). This month’s topic is “Your Vote Is Your Voice: Deepening Your Commitment to Voting and Our Democracy.” Network staff members Sr. Emily TeKolste, SP and Colin Martinez Longmore will lead the session.

This workshop on spirit-filled participation in the 2022 Election will take a deeper dive into how you can put your faith into action this election season. First, multi-issue Catholic voters will share the results of their “homework” from the previous workshop: to have conversations with people they have relationships with who have different opinions than they hold. How did those conversations go? What was learned? Sr. Emily and Colin will then equip participants with ways they can deepen their engagement, including writing Letters to the Editor and joining GOTV efforts in their communities.
