The fifth annual Justice Week is drawing attention to several domestic and international justice organizations.
Justice Week co-chair Abbey Moses said students should look forward to several organizations sharing powerful ways to get involved with the justice community.
“There is a lot to be excited about this year,” said Moses, sophomore political science major from Abilene. “We have more domestic as well as international organizations that are coming to campus.”
“I am most excited about Compassion International because they are doing a lot of work with hunger relief which is a life or death issue,” Moses said. “I worked really hard to get them on campus.”
Justice Week co-chair Brandy Rains served as co-chair last year and was part of the planning committee the year before. She planned most of the events for this year’s Justice Week.
“I started looking at organizations this summer and started planning it all out in August,” said Rains, senior art education major from Ft. Worth. “I wanted this year to draw more interest to students.”
Rains agreed with Moses about balancing domestic and international missions. Students can buy a T-shirt after Chapel on Friday, and volunteer at the West Texas Food Bank to help fight hunger in this region. Students can also attend a forum by Compassion International that works to eliminate hunger internationally.
“This year is different because all the organizations do work both stateside and globally,” Rains said .
Some of the organizations may not be popularized by students on campus, but Rains said after attending the forums, students can expect to see what amazing goals they have.
“Out of everything I do at ACU, being submerged in the social justice culture is my favorite environment to be in,” Rains said. “I love being with people who genuinely care about bringing change and go about it in innovative ways.”
