“JustFaith’s new "Youth for Justice: Our Faith in Action” curriculum provides youth leaders with the resources they need to take on the hard questions and work of justice in their unique ministry locations. With probing questions, eye-opening videos, and a variety of topics to choose from, youth are able to explore and discover the connection between their faith and justice—and that these two are inextricably intertwined.
