The Sustaining Justice Project

Leaders and ministers who are dedicated to the work of sustainability and social justice—both in churches and community-based organizations—face parallel challenges of community resistance, isolation, enormous demands on time, deeply entrenched structures and norms, and economic pressures. This leads to burn-out for leaders and stagnation for communities. The work for justice and sustainability too often is just not sustainable.

The Sustaining Justice Project seeks to support those who are dedicated to the Christian Food Movement, climate justice, and social justice. This work is centered around bringing ministers and community leaders together to support and learn from one another in small groups and cohorts. Through the cultivation of a justice-seeking joyful spirituality, shared study, and mutually supportive community, these groups help ministers and leaders cultivate moral courage and discern ways of living and acting that are personally and communally sustainable and transformational.
