Dominican Call to Justice 2015-2017
North American Dominican Promoters of Justice, Peace, and Care of Creation
The North American Dominican Justice Promoters respond to the call for justice in our world today. Engaging in issues using the pastoral model of see–judge–act, we address injustice in a spirit of respect, compassion, and solidarity with the whole Earth community.
We support the proposed United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the universal set of targets that follow and expand on the Millennium Development Goals expiring at the end of 2015. Like its predecessor, the all-encompassing goal of the SDGs is to end poverty. To achieve this goal we must recognize and challenge the underlying bias regarding culture, race, and women, as well as the overarching issue of climate change and its impact on all justice issues.
In solidarity with our sisters and brothers around the world, we commit to study, advocate, and act in the following areas:
Peace and Security for All Life
As members of the world-wide Dominican Family, we advocate for justice through our ministries, through our preaching, through our presence at the United Nations, and through our corporate socially responsible investing. We collaborate with all who seek a more just and sustainable world.
