Education for Justice

In Latin America during the 1970s and 80s, many theologians began exploring the call to bring justice and peace to poor and oppressed people, especially those suffering under dictatorships in countries such as El Salvador; Archbishop Óscar Romero was influenced by this theology and realized he must speak truth to power as he worked for the liberation of his people.

“We cannot separate our discourse about God from the liberation of his suffering people.” ﹣Gustavo Gutiérrez, A Theology of Liberation, 15th ed. (Orbis Books, 1986).
