People of Faith for Justice brings together people from various backgrounds and faith traditions. We have differing views on the nature of God, but common to each of us is a commitment to justice. We hold that a moral imperative is built into the fabric of creation itself and that humankind has a responsibility to seek the well-being of all peoples and nations and the planet on which all life depends.
We often speak of well-being as “God’s shalom” or peace, and we recognize that its very foundation builds on a multitude of interdependent relationships that emerge in our shared commitment to social righteousness, justice, and peacemaking.
Of necessity, the general well-being of all creation requires that we find the proper balance between our needs and interests as individuals and the needs and interests of the community. With the needs of the community in mind, people of faith will inevitably find a bias in favor of the poor, the powerless, and the oppressed.
We structure our vision around and channel our work through the Four Pillars described above.
