“Justice is really love in calculation. Justice is love correcting that which revolts against love.”
-Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Live Justice Now is a monthly initiative of The Riverside Church’s Mission and Social Justice ministries. Each month we will suggest actions that both respond to current events and challenges of our day, and advocate for greater justice for communities most vulnerable to abuse and exploitation.

Our nation and world are experiencing a great need for truth, justice, and compassion. In response, Riverside is committed to providing faithful Christian witness and action. Please join us as we put our faith to work and follow the words of the prophet who told us what God requires: do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8).
