About Us

Justice Revival is a diverse, inclusive community of Christian faith, dedicated to serving as a voice for human rights in the United States. In a country deeply divided about what justice requires, we affirm that justice means upholding the inherent human rights of all people, especially those on the margins-the widow and the orphan, the prisoner and the stranger. We inspire Christian communities with knowledge and understanding of human rights, and unite with them to promote a world free from injustice.
