A Faith That Does Justice

Community Engagement Ambassador (~ 4 hours per week)

A Faith That Does Justice (AFTDJ) is an interfaith organization that challenges people to experience God by living their faith intentionally in service to others. We do this by showing how unjust societal structures marginalize people and by acting to help those in need. Our vision is people intentionally living their faith in action.

The Community Engagement Ambassador, as a member of the Community Outreach Committee, plays a key role in promoting AFTDJ to marginalized people, institutions, and social service organizations. Increasing the reach of AFTDJ and its growing connections and engagement with the communities that it serves are the principal measures of success of the Community Engagement Ambassador.

Community Engagement Committee outreach to stakeholders and related goals are:

  • Marginalized People - Build engagement with communities of marginalized people, attend events that are targeted to marginalized people.
  • Organizations that Serve Marginalized People - Strengthen relationships with organizations that serve marginalized communities, so we are better able to meet the needs of the marginalized

The Community Engagement Ambassador will work closely with the Director of Community Engagement and other members of Community Engagement Committee as well as the Community Engagement Fellow in carrying out the responsibilities of Community Engagement Ambassador.

Proficiency in a second language, preferably Spanish, Creole or other commonly spoken language in the city of Boston

Mission Statement

A Faith That Does Justice is an interfaith organization that challenges people to experience God by living their faith intentionally in service to others. We do this by showing how unjust societal structures marginalize people and by acting to help those in need. Our vision is people intentionally living their faith in action.

Description

Inspiring faith in action.

What We Do:

A Faith That Does Justice has four components:

  • Faith in Action, an initiative that emphasizes the works of mercy. We offer English as a Second Language to enable those in need of better language skills to function in the work place and society.
  • Community Meetings focus on social issues that affect the most vulnerable among us. These have included presentations on immigration, housing and homelessness, and racism.
  • Monthly Workshops that bring English speaking and non-English speaking people together to realize that committed faith ought to be lived in action on behalf of justice for all.
  • Communications, email and social media posting on social justice and faith topics to educate our readers and to remind and inform readers about important social justice issues such as racism and immigration.


Who We Are:
We are a volunteer-run program, helping people from different faith traditions walk in solidarity with those less fortunate. Volunteering with A Faith that Does Justice allows you to put your faith into action and make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

Who We Seek:
As a fully volunteer organization, we rely on the talents, skills and dedication of volunteers to carry out our mission. We ask that volunteers commit at least 3 hours per week supporting our endeavors.
