What We Do

Education

We provide churches and seminaries with innovative, quality education that explores the importance of human rights to a Christian understanding of justice. Our pioneering programs illuminate the concept of human rights from theological, spiritual, historical, and legal perspectives. They foster understanding of the rich relationship between Christian beliefs and values and the ideal of universal human rights. Our courses prepare and challenge leaders and communities to put their understanding into action by standing up for human rights in their own neighborhoods and beyond.

Thought Leadership

We voice faithful commitment to the cause of justice and the equal rights of all people, both in the Church and in the public square. Through speaking engagements, publications, and a variety of events, we articulate how Christian values and human rights principles support and affirm one other. Our purpose in speaking out is to honor the human dignity and rights of those on the margins, amplifying their voices at every opportunity.

Advocacy

We marshal the cultural, spiritual and intellectual resources of the Christian tradition to advocate with a prophetic voice for justice and human rights for all. Our advocacy efforts focus on the laws, policies, and practices of the United States, based on the conviction that the U.S. must strive for greater realization of human rights at home if it is to become “a more perfect union” and speak with integrity to broader human rights concerns in the world beyond its borders.

Collaboration

We forge relationships and foster collaboration between Christian congregations and human rights organizations. Recognizing the value of working together across boundaries, we seek to bridge the gap between Christian and human rights communities. We pursue alliances with diverse religious, interfaith, and secular movements for justice and human rights. Invite us to your community so we can work together.

Theory of Change

The focal problem that Justice Revival was formed to address is the way in which Christianity is too often invoked to oppose rather than to uphold human rights in the United States. Each facet of our ministry is designed to target one of the root causes of this core problem.

  • Through Christian education and thought leadership, we build much needed knowledge and understanding of human rights among communities of faith.
  • Through partnerships with leading advocacy groups and coalitions, we promote collaboration between faith-based and secular human rights activists.
  • By advocating for human rights from a justice-focused Christian worldview that embraces full human equality, we counteract the harmful effects of religious nationalism and religious complicity in oppressive systems.

In all that we do, Justice Revival pursues radical transformation of the current conditions—so that Christian faith communities are known for actively safeguarding human rights, and insisting that our public officials do the same.

Educational Impact

We provide pioneering Christian education on justice and human rights designed specifically for U.S. church communities. It’s the first of its kind in the United States.
