'Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed, defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.' Many American kids today---even in Christian churches---don't have a full idea of the challenges presented by brutality, by crying children, by grieving widows; not what in the world they can do about it! That's about to change. The Justice Mission is a video-based curriculum that depicts the stark facts about oppression and injustice around the world ... and presents a Bible-based approach to dealing with them! In the DVD segments, students will follow the visit of four American teens to squalid corners of India. They will be prompted to think again, and again, about the evil they find ... and about bullying, prejudice, and attitudes that God hates in their own neighborhoods and the hallways of their schools. The Justice Mission is a partnership between Youth Specialties and the International Justice Mission, an organization that, through educating the church and mobilizing effective intervention, serves those who cannot rely on local authorities for relief. The Justice Mission surely will ignite holy passion for the oppressed victims of injustice. It will change lives---of your students in these sessions, and of untold numbers of victims across God's earth.
