Different Paths, Collective Efforts

The challenges are significant, but in the short time I have participated in the JLF program, I have been encouraged by how many people have the heart for change. As these teachings we've reviewed for the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic perspectives on economic justice and empowerment get to the same place while traveling different roads, so too is the journey for those of us working to create empowered communities. We may each have a different path to take while our collective efforts are designed to accomplish one goal: uplifting our fellow beings.

Articulating Useful Visions for Justice

Investments must not harm the environment and people must not profit off unlawful or immoral practices. Nor should people profit from others’ debts. In this economic ecosystem, wealth serves people, rather than the other way around. Here in Baltimore, where economic injustice goes hand in hand with racism, this economic vision is particularly valuable.
