Social Justice Committee

The Social Justice Committee helps Gaia Community members to reach beyond our congregation and take action supporting our principles in the wider community and the world. Past projects of the Social Justice Committee include raising money for Heifer International, collecting holiday gifts for children receiving services through Jackson County Court-Appointed Special Advocates, sending care packages to pagan soldiers serving overseas, encouraging community members to volunteer for environmental stewardship activities, and fulfilling a wish list for Hope House, a local shelter for victims of domestic violence. Ongoing Social Justice activities include participating in the annual Blue River Rescue, and collecting donations of non-perishable food for Harvesters, a local food bank.

The Social Justice Committee is chaired by Erin, and meets monthly on the second Wednesday of the month, at 7 p.m. If you would like to join the committee, or attend a meeting, email sj@gaiacommunity.org, or talk to Erin for more information.

Please note that as of January 11, 2012, the Social Justice Committee is also known as the Social Justice League of Justice (costumes not required, but no capes!).
