Doing Justice: A How-To
The Bible says that one of the expectations God has for us is
that we “do justice.” Below are some specific suggestions for
how to do that. Please send your additional ideas to us at Hope
for Peace & Justice.
- Write a letter or email to a politician or editor once a week
about a justice issue that concerns you. There is a section
of h4pj.org that can help you do that.
- Forward emails you receive from H4PJ or other justice
organizations and seek to engage family and friends in caring
about issues that are important to you.
- Recycle. You can now request a “Big Blue” roll-cart from
the City of Dallas, in which you can place glass, aluminum
and paper. Just call the non-emergency number, 3-1-1, or
- Boycott Exxon and other companies that exploit the environment
and gouge customers by making obscene profits.
Write to them and tell them why you are boycotting.
- Use environmentally friendly products and educate yourself
on how you can leave a smaller footprint on the planet.
- Check out the links listed on the H4PJ website.
- Buy a hybrid, or at least a more energy efficient, car the
next time you buy. Walk more rather than drive everywhere;
pretend you live in New York, or a real city where
folks actually walk.
- Subscribe to justice magazines and e-letters that can help to
keep your soul stirred and motivated.
- Read and do your own research. Mainstream media is
keeping us in the dark about many issues, but the information
is out there. We just have to find it. Become the best
informed person in your family about issues like Iraq, and
then talk to others.
- Get out of your comfort zone. Talk to people of a different
race, or an immigrant, or a poor person, or someone who
is elderly and living on a fixed income. Find out firsthand
what their challenges are and how you can help.
- Give two nights a month to an organization or cause that is
working to make the world a better place.
