Women and Justice
In 2009, the Churchwide Assembly authorized the development of a social statement on women and justice. The ELCA Task Force on Women and Justice: One in Christ has been at work since 2012 and brought the work to a crucial stage. On November 15, 2017 it released the Draft of a Social Statement on Women and Justice. The comment period on the Draft is open until September 30, 2018.
The ELCA Task Force on Women and Justice invites us to read and evaluate the “Draft of a Social Statement on Women and Justice.” Over the 5 weeks in September we will read and discuss the statement and then individuals can respond to the task force with their comments and evaluation. You may download the statement here. An overview of the Draft Statement is available on the table in the narthex.
