Social Justice Ministries of the Church Council of Greater Seattle educates, advocates, and organizes with member congregations and develops partnerships with other faith communities and community organizations to help create conditions for social, economic and racial justice in Martin Luther King, Jr. County, the State, the nation, and the world. We bring a distinct moral and faith voice to issues of our time, drawing on the Gospel values of justice, peace, reconciliation and love.
Our work focuses on several overlapping areas, including:
Homelessness and Housing
Confronting Poverty / Worker Justice
Peace, Justice and Human Rights

Invite us to speak
We sow the seeds of social change by working in partnership with congregations and individuals alike to speak and stand up for social justice and for systematic change. We can arrange for educational discussions of social justice issues. Invite us to worship, a temple talk, coffee hour, Bible Study, forum or a discussion.
Contact us to find out more about how people in our community are coming together to bring about God's vision for a new earth.
