Teaching Justice 2020 Style
Based on an intergenerational model of learning, the web-based curriculum highlights the Poor People’s Campaign five “jubilee justice” principles around communities, inclusion, voice, lifting all, and the concept that there is enough for all.

Christmas Mission Project (More details)
Thanks to a number of Disciples youth groups and congregants Karen and her friend, Selena Seesecker, was able to collect almost 900 cards for detained asylum seekers. Each of your cards included handwritten cheerful, caring and hopeful messages (written in the detainees’ native language) which we feel sure will lift the spirits of these asylum seeking detainees as they await their court dates which determine their fate.

This project is simple but very meaningful because it will provide some 5000 asylum seekers (many of whom are children) in detainment at Eloy Detention Center in Eloy, Arizona with the only Christmas present they are going to receive.
