Justice Walking is a comprehensive, faith-based and service-focused program inviting students to go deeper in their faith lives and explore social justice through experience, education, and reflective understanding. Students do not have to embrace a particular faith perspective to participate in the program, but should be open to faith as a critical component for just living.
As they journey together, Justice Walking participants have an opportunity to leave their comfort zones, live with compassion, and grow in a spirituality of justice. Weekly service work and regular community reflection allow Justice Walking participants to engage in reflection thought and action on the issues surrounding human dignity:
- How do we understand human dignity issues? What do these issues have to do with us?
- What are the socioeconomic, political and religious factors operating in our awareness and concern for the dignity of all people?
- How can we advocate for basic human dignity?
- What impact does our Justice Walking journey have on our spiritual and vocational discernment?
- How can our service work, relationships with others, and shared experiences as a Justice Walking community challenge us to lead active faith lives that seek greater justice?
