About A Faith That Does Justice

A Faith That Does Justice is an interfaith organization that raises consciousness about social issues affecting the most vulnerable among us and offers opportunities for people to walk in solidarity with those who our society marginalizes. We welcome people of all races, religions, cultures and sexual orientations. We are respectful of our differences and seek to learn from each other ways to overcome the social, political and economic barriers that may separate us.

There are three components to A Faith That Does Justice:

  • Workshops - that honor the inherent human dignity of all and explore how our faiths challenge us to work for a world where all God’s people can enjoy a fair share of the goods of God’s creation.
  • Community Meetings - that focus on the social issues that affect the most vulnerable among us. Meetings feature invited speakers, discussion groups, and an opportunity to seek advice and assistance from, or even to volunteer with, a non-profit organization in attendance. We also provide simultaneous interpretation of these presentations so everyone attending can understand the content of the talk and have a voice during the subsequent discussions.
  • Faith in Action - that emphasizes the works of mercy. We have an English for Speakers of Other Language (ESOL) program led by a volunteer director who works with teachers, tutors and others to provide ESOL training to those who have recently arrived in the U. S. and who need better language and social interaction skills to obtain employment and to live successfully in this country.

For those who live in the greater Boston area, we invite you to join us at our workshops, Community Meetings, and our English for Speakers of Other Languages program. Please see the Events page for further information about times and locations.

For those who live at a distance and cannot be among us, we invite you to regularly explore our website as a way to walk with us in a transformative journey from a faith that is proclaimed dogmatically to one that is also lived from the heart and acts on behalf of the good of all God’s people. Please explore our website to learn more about our journey.

Thank you for your interest in A Faith That Does Justice. We hope to see you soon.
