Work For Justice and Peace


Click here for a description of each book to be discussed in 2023.


We are called to share God’s love with the world, by being God’s hands in the world. We answer God’s call to “do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God” (Micah 6:8).

Presbyterian Women in the Congregation, Presbytery and Synod groups respond to local or regional justice and peace needs. Our work can be action, advocacy, or awareness-building—or a mixture depending on the gifts of our groups. In addition to local and regional emphases, Presbyterian Women Churchwide suggests addressing the injustices of
      • Mass incarceration
      • Poverty
      • Racism
      • Human trafficking
      • Violence 

And promoting
      • Quality education
      • Informed advocacy through
             •  The United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) and
             • Ecumenical Advocacy Days (EAD)

Together in Action Days

While Presbyterian Women works for justice and peace on many issues in many ways, Together in Action days are opportunities for Presbyterian Women across the country to address two specific justice issues in their local contexts. Learn more about
