Justice and Advocacy: Using Your Voice to Campaign for Justice

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” – Desmond Tutu

“It is impossible to ignore the political implications of biblical justice.”
– Joel Edwards

 Advocacy: Influencing the decisions, policies and practices of powerful decision-makers, to address underlying causes of poverty, bring justice and support good development. Advocacy never just raises awareness of an issue, problem or situation. It always seeks to change the policies, practices, systems, structures, decisions and atti­tudes that cause the issue, problem or situation so that they work in favour of people living in poverty and injustice.
