Social Justice and Advocacy - resources

A collection of resources for learning about social justice issues

Jesus' teachings make it clear that we are called to care for the poor and for those in need. The resources here are to provide some references about needs and to foster thinking about how best to engage intentionally as a parish in responding to those identified needs.

The Diocese of Toronto provides a Poverty Reduction Page for research and to learn more about the realities of poverty. It is found in the Social Justice section of its website.

The links below connect with a selection of those resources. There is also a link to the diocesan Poverty Reduction Page. There you can find more information and other links to additional resources.
