P.M. – Citizens for Public Justice envisions a world in which individuals, communities, societal institutions, and governments all contribute to and benefit from the common good. Our mission is to promote public justice in Canada by shaping key public policy debates through research and analysis, publishing, and public dialogue. CPJ encourages citizens, leaders in society, and governments to support policies and practices which reflect God’s call for love, justice, and the flourishing of Creation. As citizens, we are called to participate in the public sphere and encourage our governments to adopt just policies. As Christians, we are called to live out our response to God’s call to love and justice. This response is at the heart of public justice. Public justice is the political dimension of loving one’s neighbour, caring for creation, and achieving the common good. It involves seeking out and implementing just policies that allow everyone to live in dignity and participate in society.
