About Us

The Office of Social Justice helps CRC members love our neighbors in tangible ways. We provide resources to learn about the root causes of poverty, hunger, and oppression, and we empower the church to call on those in power to improve systems and enact just public policy.

We prioritize the perspectives of marginalized people most impacted by injustices, raise awareness, educate members, share resources, and prompt advocacy.

It’s how we love our neighbors. It’s how we live our faith.
