Justice

“Be the change you want to see in the world”

You’ll see these words the minute you walk into our sanctuary..
We believe the spirit of justice and compassion is at work, through us ordinary people, individually and collectively.

As a community, we engage in dialogue about how we can educate ourselves regarding important justice issues, to then find ways to take action together as agents of change or movement towards healing, wholeness, justice and equity for all people and all creation.

Some of the advocacy we’re involved with:
• First Nations: Reconciliation & advocacy
• LGBTQ+: CampOut and Rainbow Refugee
• Anti-black racism
• Palestine/Israel: Palnet
• Climate justice
• Affordable housing
• Opioid crisis
• Sex worker safety & support: SAFE in Cedar Cottage network
• Poverty and food insecurity
