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.

Tell Congress: No funding for new nuclear weapons
The Trump administration has proposed a new so-called “low yield” nuclear weapon. This weapon is unnecessary and would fuel a dangerous arms race and hasten nuclear war. Ask your members of Congress to support the Hold the LYNE (Low-Yield Nuclear Explosive) Act, H.R. 6840, which prohibits funding for this unnecessary and unwise weapon.
