Guiding Principles

  • Membership is made up of Joliet Diocese parishes and institutions that make a commitment to social justice and our organization.
  • Membership can include individuals not formally representing an institution, but sharing our mission.
  • We are a ministry of the Joliet Diocese Office for Human Dignity - Justice and Peace Ministry, working in partnership with Catholic Relief Services and working in collaboration with other social justice organizations.
  • We are strictly non-partisan as we address social justice issues and take actions.
  • We build relationships and community among the parishes and other institutions of the Diocese of Joliet.
  • We act as one body on social justice issues agreed upon by discernment and consensus.
  • We share information that allows individual members to take action as they wish as long as the issue and action fall within our mission.
  • We speak for the poor and marginalized.
  • We work in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in need throughout the world to move them toward self-sufficiency.

Some of our first actions:
