At a Glance

Justice Revival is a leading Christian voice for human rights in the United States.

We are a diverse, inclusive Christian movement committed to the cause of justice. In a country deeply divided about what justice requires, we affirm that upholding the inherent human rights of all people is essential, and those under threat in the U.S. today deserve our special concern.

We utilize a human rights approach because the moral vision of the human rights framework resonates with our Christian commitments to love, justice, peace, and human flourishing. We also believe human rights offers a powerful legal tool for upholding the dignity of the human person — and for accountability when that dignity is violated.

Justice Revival provides a unique platform and expert resources to empower and equip the growing Christian movement for human rights in the United States. By promoting understanding of the alignment between human rights principles and Christian values, we engage Christian communities in this signal movement for justice.

Our work is concerned with those whose dignity and rights are under threat in the U.S. today: the poor and unhoused; religious and ethnic minorities; Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color; immigrants; women; LGBTQ+ individuals, and others.

Our mission is to inspire, educate, and mobilize Christian communities to respond faithfully to the call to justice by standing in solidarity with the oppressed and defending the human rights of all.

What We Do

Christian Human Rights Education

Justice Revival helps Christian faith leaders and communities understand human rights more deeply through innovative, religiously literate education programs. Our flagship course, “Human Rights in Christian Perspective,” is the first of its kind in the United States and has served congregations across the country. We offer a graduate version of this course through our seminary partners.

Justice Revival also provides dynamic, live, web-based events that bring together leading experts to address timely topics at the intersection of Christian faith and human rights—which all are welcome to join. You can watch previous events and register for upcoming events here.

Advocacy & Collaboration

Justice Revival marshals intellectual, cultural, and spiritual resources of Christian faith communities to advocate boldly for equal justice and rights for all, in collaboration with diverse religious, interfaith, and secular partners. Our advocacy efforts focus on racial and gender justice and equity, while supporting the liberation struggles of Black, Indigenous, and all People of Color, religious minorities, LGBTQ+ individuals, women, migrants, and others whose rights are under threat.

Equal Rights Amendment

Justice Revival is the leading faith voice on equal rights and full inclusion of all people in our nation’s constitution. We created and lead the #Faith4ERA campaign, a growing coalition of faith groups supporting the Equal Rights Amendment—a basic human rights reform ensuring equality of rights cannot be “denied or abridged” based on sex.

Justice Revival led the development of an Interfaith Statement of Support for the ERA, which over 500 Protestant, Catholic, Evangelical, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, and Sikh faith leaders have already signed. Along with our partner organizations, we continue advocating for the ERA to become the 28th Constitutional Amendment.

Providing a Christian Voice for Human Rights

Justice Revival also provides expert insight and timely calls to action around many issues that fall in the intersection of Christian values and human rights, including, but not limited to:

  • Racial justice and equality
  • Gender justice and equality
  • Criminal justice and police reform
  • Hate speech and hate crimes
  • Sexual and domestic violence
  • The death penalty
  • LGBTQ+ rights
  • Immigrant, asylum seeker, and refugee rights
  • Voting rights
  • The right to healthcare and housing

Through sermons, lectures, and publications, we bring a thoughtful, well-informed voice of faith to justice issues of our day, emphasizing support for human rights in the Christian tradition.
