People of Faith Advocating for Social, Economic, and Racial Justice
Join the advocacy network of the Twin Cities’ largest social services provider. Because men, women, children, and families come to Catholic Charities during some of the hardest times in their lives, we have considerable insight into the challenges they face and the hopes they have for the future. Join with us to advocate for the social, economic, and racial justice that transforms not only the lives of those in need but of our entire community.
Who Are Sowers of Justice?
Sowers of Justice is a network of people of faith advocating for social, economic, and racial justice.
Sowers are action-oriented and make a difference by working for the long-term integration of justice into our community and by taking collective action that can produce systemic change.
Sowers use and share skill-based advocacy, and take seriously the need for ongoing education, enrichment, and leadership development in the skills of public life.
Sowers are inspired by the values of solidarity with our community’s most vulnerable members; the constructive role of government; and the promotion of peace. While these and all the principles of Catholic Social Teaching guide our work to create a more just and humane society, our values transcend religion.
