Global Women's Project Affirms Mandela's Commitment to Social Equality

The Global Women's Project mourns the passing of Nelson Mandela and celebrates his incomparable achievements. Mandela's work challenged prejudices of all kinds and inspired people across the world to work against injustice. Women have historically been among those most oppressed, and still bear great injustice and inequality in many regions of the world today. As we look toward Human Rights Day on December 10, the Global Women's Project affirms the timeless message of Nelson Mandela, who wrote in a letter, August 1, 1970: “Social equality is the only basis of human happiness.”  Please join us in commemorating Mandela's legacy by supporting our work!

EFJ Project Posts New Advent Resources

 Education for Justice has posted two new Advent resource series at www.educationforjustice.org.  A daily calendar explores the signs of the times, offering reflections that connect Advent scriptures to the many crises facing the human family, along with prayers and action ideas. Weekly reflections on the Sunday gospels also are available, providing links to daily scripture readings as well as spiritual exercises and action links. These reflections, along with our new "Mother of the Living Gospel" prayer, echo the words and spirit of Pope Francis' new exhortation, "The Joy of the Gospel."
