Helping to create a more just world is integral to the mission of ERUUF and to transforming lives, including our own. Whether you only have an hour here or there or want to get deeply involved in an on-going commitment, your participation in the justice work of ERUUF is welcome and needed. You will find community here to support your values in action, as hundreds of ERUUFians are involved in justice ministry - from baking cookies for meals at the shelter to lobbying our lawmakers for better environmental laws. From marching in Raleigh or D.C. to serving as tutors at El Centro Hispano. There are many ways to be involved. Check out our various justice ministries and activities.

Justice work takes multiple forms here - education, advocacy, witness, action and transformation.
Education challenges us to change so that the way we live our lives does not have unintended consequences that support injustice.
Advocacy does the hard work of educating others and contributing to public awareness or policy solutions by engaging with the legislative process and a wider public.
Witness requires us to share our convictions and be an exemplary model of living out our values and principles.
Action and service helps feed, clothe, support, train, and lift up the oppressed and creates programs that produce positive change.
Transformation, the changing of lives, happens by providing opportunities for all participants to increase self-reflection, sensitivity, confidence, ability, and spiritual growth. The end result is empowerment and the ability to organize and produce change in the greater world,
