The 8th Day Center for Justice will host the 30th annual Good Friday Walk for Justice on Friday, April 2, noon, meeting on the corner of  Congress and Michigan Streets. The theme for this year’s Good Friday Walk – Trouble the Water – reflects 8th Day Center’s belief that each of us must bear the responsibility to be in solidarity with those who suffer at the hands of dominating and abusive power. Those who are condemned, burdened, stripped of dignity, tortured and killed by unjust public policies.

Other “justice” actions

During this Holy Week, our friends at Catholics Confront Global Poverty invite you to consider the issue of poverty here in the United States.
Learn how 25 percent of contributions to CRS’ Operation Rice Bowl support local hunger and poverty relief efforts in the United States. 
As Catholics, we have a global responsibility to assist those in need both in our own communities and around the world.  Pray for our brothers and sisters who struggle with poverty, wherever they may live, using this prayer and support CRS’ work in reducing hunger and poverty.
