Healing Justice Coalition is a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, economically diverse coalition of faith based organizations that provide support for and advocate on behalf of children and families involved in Los Angeles County’s and California’s child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Our membership includes Protestants of several denominations, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Mormons, Buddhists and Sikhs. Our philosophies, beliefs and practices are even more diverse than this simple list indicates. We are all able to coalesce around the need to protect young people in our community who are in the custody of the state and to give them the chance to become healthy productive adults. Because we are faith communities, we believe in the strength of the human spirit, the possibility of repentance and redemption and the importance of rooting the individual in the wider community.
Juvenile Justice Month of
Thank you for the compassion you demonstrated during our Juvenile Justice Month of Faith and Healing celebrations. It is only in our collective efforts, where we can create a justice system that God will recognize and a community which provides a safe place for all of our children to become the greatest version of themselves possible.
Below is a link to an article that covers a few of our JJMFH activities, and a link to a video that shows how Loyola High School celebrated JJMFH last year.
Loyola High School:
I look forward to our continued fellowship in this effort to create a system that seeks to heal the wounds of violence, and to remind our youth that they are not alone on their journey.
Faith and Healing
- During JJMFH faith communities call for a justice system that promotes healing.
