As Christians, we believe God cares about justice. He is a voice for the voiceless, and He calls us to care for widows, orphans, and the disenfranchised.

During #justiceweek19 we want to EDUCATE, MOTIVATE, and LIBERATE. 

We long to educate Christians and non-Christians on our campus about the issue of mass-incarceration. We want Christians to learn about this injustice and to be called to take action with the love of God and the goodness of the gospel. We also want non-Christians to learn about this issue and to see that Christians care and have spiritual resources to aid in correcting oppression.

We long to motivate. We want all people to be encouraged to act on behalf of the oppressed. With the help of God's Word, we can advocate for the disenfranchised and spur each other on in this endeavor. 

We long to liberate. We pray that God will use our efforts to bring actual people out of prisons and to remind them of the dignity and value they have as people made in the image of God.
