Social Justice Toolkit - Catholic Charities

The Social Justice Toolkit is comprised of resources, activity ideas, volunteer opportunities, and community organization profiles that highlight the social justice principles informing our mission over the years. It is our hope that this toolkit serves as a resource for you to continue to write that history in your own neighborhoods and faith communities. Opportunities within are organized around the seven principles of Catholic Social Teaching, which challenge us to live the call to holiness.
