Why Christians Should be Involved in
Seeking Social Justice

Citizens for Public Justice and the Vancouver School of Theology are excited to bring you an evening with Tony Campolo. Willard Metzger, CPJ’s executive director, will join Tony to explore “Why Christians should be involved in seeking social justice.” Together, we’ll look at look how churches can work towards ending poverty in Canada, seeking climate justice, and protecting refugee rights.
