Why We Seek Justice
- To promote a vision of justice based on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ.
- To advocate and advise on social, economic, political issues and events which lead to the perpetuation of injustice in the world.
- To amplify the voices of poor, marginalized and oppressed people and translate their real life insights into policies, practices and life-giving opportunities.
‘God is still leading and blessing the Army. With that comes a clear call … to link who we are with the very essence of what we do, the mission that is ours. […] It is a call to be a justice-focused Army.’- The Officer – July-September 2018

The ISJC will investigate issues and questions, providing tools for measuring and documenting social justice.
ISJC will produce resources to inform and equip others with knowledge to seek justice together.
