Alliance: All Justice is Eco-justice
New Programs Promote Understanding of Water and Food Issues
23, 2007--- As the nation marks Earth Day and long before Al
Gore’s academy award winning documentary, An Inconvenient
Truth, the care of creation has been the framework
on which Dominicans do the work of justice as expressed in the
document; Dominican Call to Justice. Using
this perspective, issues of peace and justice in the world are
matters that affect planet Earth itself. Thus all work for justice
is really a matter for eco-justice.
The thirteen member congregations of the Dominican Alliance have
worked to foster this understanding for many years.
The Dominican Alliance congregations’ committee of EcoJustice
Promoters have produced a series of programs to further the understanding
that justice work is really work on behalf of eco-justice. Two of
the programs are now available on CD for purchase for $25 each. Both Food
for the Journey and Water for the Journey provide ample
material for flexible program formats that introduce all the major
issues about food and water. A third program Journey to
the Land will be available by early next year.
If you are interested in purchasing
these programs, please contact Marguerite Chandler, OP at firstname.lastname@example.org. She
will direct you to the closest EcoJustice member.
