What You Can Do for Justice

Community BoardJoin us to create compassionate justice grounded in spiritual community! Here’s some of what you can do: Put together weekly meals for the street homeless. Make and serve a monthly dinner at a local men’s shelter. Advocate for things like public transportation and against things like gun violence. Bring a food donation on Sundays. Place some money in our Sunday collection plate which we’ll share with a worthy justice partner.

If you’re looking for ways to get involved, share your gifts, and serve the common good; you’ve come to the right place. Here are some specific opportunities to get involved. Our Justice League coordinates our justice work, contact them at <justice at alleghenyuu.org>.
