Links to Justice

During Justice Week we are engaging people that are on different levels of knowledge about injustices around the world. After learning and dealing with these issues during Justice Week, we hope that people will be motivated to respond to their calling. Below is a list of just a few organizations in which you can get involved in to help further the cause for justice:

Campus Coalition Against Trafficking (CCAT)
This is a university campus movement that seeks to build the anti-trafficking movement by training emerging leaders, fostering youth empowerment, raising awareness about human trafficking and encouraging linkages among social injustices. (www.ccatcoalition.org)

The Micah Challenge
Micah Challenge is a global Christian-run campaign.
