“God calls us to “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”

Isaiah 1:17

 

This is just one of more than 2000 references to justice and poverty throughout the Bible. At Baptist World Aid Australia we believe that speaking up for justice is an act of worship and an important way of living out our faith.

Together, Our Voices Can End Poverty

 

We live in a broken world. A world in which injustice stands opposed to God’s heart for His creation. But together, our voices are stronger than injustice. Add your voice to one of our targeted advocacy campaigns and speak for justice or mobilise members of your church to advocate by joining our Catalyst network.
