Six Broken Places: Injustice

What is Injustice?

When the world is broken, we see injustice abounding everywhere resulting in systems of poverty, hunger, disease, and slavery among others. These systemic injustices are in violation of basic human rights and God never designed it to be this way.

Why is Healing Injustice Important to God?

Where the Kingdom of God is evident, we rejoice overseeing vast systems of human poverty, misery, and brokenness coming to an end. God calls Champions to see that wrongs are righted and suffering ends.

Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows. Isaiah 1:17

Healing the Broken Place of Injustice Do You Long To See Wrongs Righted?

Are you passionate about ensuring everyone has the same opportunities?

If so, you might be a Champion. You don't have to travel abroad or be a lawyer to be a Champion. And while there is no quick fix for systems of injustice, when Christ-followers live out kingdom values on behalf of those who are not treated equally, these systems crumble. Something powerful happens when we pursue servant hood, generosity, and sacrifice on behalf of the poor and marginalized.

Injustice is Closer Than You Think Injustice in Our Backyard

From our public schools where students of color are often underfunded and receive inferior programming to human trafficking rates rising to our criminal justice system that disproportionately targets and incarcerates people of color and criminalizes poverty, it's vital that we stand against systems of injustice. You don't have to look far to see it. God calls us to get in the game and work to break down these unjust systems. We must strive to educate and empower our schools, churches, courts, businesses, and more to act on what is right and bring equity to everyone!

Resources for Champions

Check out these resources to bring awareness to systems of injustice and confront them head on.

Check out these resources for teaching about inclusion, social justice, equity, and more.

1. Speak out. When you see injustice happening around you, speak against it. This may be a one-on-one conversation or it may mean going to your principal, school counselor, boss, or HR representative. Never stay silent.  

2. Volunteer. We partner with a number of local organizations fighting injustices of all kinds and there are thousands more all over the world. Pick one and volunteer!

3. Make a contribution. One way you can take a stand at an individual level is by donating money to a group or organization that is trying to correct a specific injustice. Consider making a financial contribution to a group you think is doing good work.

4. Attend a meeting or peaceful protests/rallies. Depending on the specific injustice you are interested in standing up against, some groups will organize large public events to bring awareness to the issue and speak out against it. Attending one of these can be a great way to take a public stand for what you believe in.

5. Contact people who have the power to stop it. Whether it's an email or phone call, contact your local politicians, state senators, and media outlets to share your concerns for the injustice you see happening. Be sure to provide careful consideration and give a course of action that can be taken to stop the injustice from happening.
