Dear CSJ members,
The last few months have been plagued with divisive turmoil – from wars abroad to the recent election here in the States. However, we have also seen success, at least for the moment, in the Dakota Access Pipeline and we know what can happen when individuals and communities are empowered to work together for good.
Our hope is that this newsletter plants seeds of hope so each of you can continue to be an agent of change for yourselves and empower your clients and communities to bring long lasting positive changes in the social justice arena.
Thank you all for your patience in receiving this first edition of the 2016/2017 newsletter. My sincerest thanks to the newsletter team – Lauren Chase, Ghil Hong, and Dylan Davis – for their assistance in making this a beautiful edition!
May this season’s greetings bring you all joy and peace!

On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say which we won’t understand
“Don’t accept that what’s happening
Is just a case of others’ suffering
Or you’ll find that you’re joining in
The turning away” – Pink Floyd
