Justice for Women

Justice for Women

Justice for Women is a grassroots movement for social justice and systemic change, with women living on the margins. Women’s Justice Circles empower women to identify issues of concern in their communities and act for change.

Join us celebrating 20 years of Justice for Women Program with the Booklet below.
Experience Grace on the Margins…

  • From Tacoma to Tanzania, the Northwest to New Jersey, in 72 cities and 8 countries women have gathered in Justice Circles!
  • Changes in housing, transportation, education, healthcare access, and social service systems have resulted because of the Circles!
  • Over 300 groups have collaborated with us in a common vision for the common good!

We are full of gratitude for all the women who have developed their leadership skills and taken action, in over 300 Justice Circles, to create healthy, stable lives for themselves, their families and their communities.
