Social Justice Chaplaincy

Social justice chaplaincy supports the spiritual needs of those involved in short- or long-term social justice efforts, such as movements like Occupy Wall Street and the protests at Standing Rock in the Dakotas. In the words of Daring Compassion, “Movement chaplaincy is the work of spiritual accompaniment to justice movements and their leaders. Just as there are chaplains who attend to the spiritual needs of people in hospitals, colleges, corporate environments and other settings, there is a need for those who can fill this role within our movements for social change.”
