In the book of James, chapter 2, verse 17, we are told, "faith ... if it does not have works, is dead." As people of faith, we believe one of these works of our faith is participation in civil disobedience. If you are discerning some type of nonviolent civil disobedience, we offer the following resource to help guide you.

Our grassroots organizing for social and ecological justice is unique:
Franciscans work on several issues through Franciscan Action Network (FAN), but our most organized campaign is on climate change. Franciscan Earth Corps members are passionate about many issues and are encouraged to develop ways of advocating for systemic change, and they are invited in a special way to join the efforts of Franciscans for climate justice.
