Be a Champion for Justice in Your Community

Does your heart ache when you see injustice in the world today?

Learn to do right; seek justice.
Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow.
Isaiah 1:17

Access to Justice

Why does equal access matter?

Legal issues are often a root cause of poverty.

1 in 5 Americans qualify for legal help with housing, healthcare, family relationships, and employment. Less than half will find it.

You have an incredible opportunity to provide access to justice and Jesus by volunteering at a Gospel Justice Center.
