Education for Justice invites you to participate in the four moments of the Pastoral Circle: experience, analysis, reflection, and action. We hope our resources help you to experience, analyze, and reflect upon social challenges, e.g., human trafficking, climate change, or income inequality.
Here, we encourage everyone to live out the fourth moment of the Pastoral Circle—to act—and to respond impactfully to promote social justice and care for our common home and one another.
The reiterative discipline of the Pastoral Circle respects and safeguards the dignity of the human person and the natural world, particularly in the marginalized and other vulnerable circumstances.
Our team has curated petitions and calls to action from like-minded groups and organizations here, and invites you to consider supporting these efforts.
Implement the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the fundamental and international agreement on what human rights are, and so must be known and applied throughout the world. Make your voice heard. Make human rights education in schools and universities part of the curriculum. You can ensure human rights are learned and demanded by everyone, by signing this petition.

Learn about the “Love Knows No Border” Campaign
Join faith leaders and communities across the country as they stand in solidarity with the migrant caravan and all who seek refuge in the United States. Call on government leaders to respect the human right to migrate, to end the militarization of border communities, and to end the detention and deportation of immigrants.

Support the People’s Demands for Climate Justice
Climate change is the crisis of our time. This December at COP24, you will lay out the rules to implement the Paris Agreement, policies that will affect the lives of billions of people. Urge government leaders to stand with people across the world, not Big Polluters, and immediately take steps to address the climate crisis.
