The Office of Social Justice and Hunger Action (OSJ) responds to God’s call to let justice flow like a river in our personal and communal lives, especially as it relates to hunger and poverty. We educate CRC members, encourage and support their engagement in social justice issues, and occasionally are involved in direct advocacy.
The Office of Social Justice has lots of new ways to stay connected. Our latest newsletter, “OSJ Prayers,” is a weekly digest of the most pressing justice issues around the world for use in small groups or personal prayer.
For a comprehensive overview of various social-justice issues, turn to Justice Seekers magazine. The summer issue on fair trade was a huge success. We also have an active presence on both Facebook and Twitter for folks who prefer shorter, more immediate updates.
Our Action Center at www.crcjustice.org has an increased capacity, thanks to our new advocacy and issues intern. Visit regularly to get a Reformed perspective on the hottest political topics, from the situation in the Middle East to immigration reform and healthcare. Don’t know how to advocate? We can help with that too!

Our social networking website, CRC Justice Seekers, is still going strong at justiceseekers.ning.com. Join others in the CRC as we discuss and reflect on social-justice issues from a Reformed perspective with photos, videos, and blog posts.
We regularly help other agencies develop advocacy programs. Recent partnerships include CRWRC’s World Hunger and Embrace AIDS campaigns, World Missions’ Middle East campaign (Hope Equals), and Disability Concerns. Contact us to learn how your ministry can do advocacy too.
