ASJ MISSION STATEMENT

Advocates for Social Justice is a faith based group of individuals committed to mobilizing and energizing people to be agents of God’s love, justice, peace and reconciliation.  While we recognize that there are differences of opinion among us, we will honor and seek viewpoints utilizing “Holy Conferencing” as described in the United Methodist Church as a way to build communication and awareness for social justice issues.

We are committed to providing information and to facilitating action through forums on current social justice topics such as, but not limited to, Reconciling Ministries, Immigration Reform, Capital Punishment, Poverty in Tarrant County, Global Care and Young Adults at Risk.

We are an intergenerational group open to individuals of all races, nationalities, sexual orientations, gender identities and theological identities.  Our hearts, minds and doors are always open as we strive to be a community of spiritual growth that reflects compassion towards all God’s children, engaging in prophetic and pastoral outreach to church and society. We invite all people to join us in our faith journey toward greater love, understanding and mutual respect.
