Anti-Semitism is once again on the march in Europe

There are many people for which this holiday season will be full of family, fireplaces, warm hugs and overflow of gifts. But many are not so fortunate. When we started to think of how we could make a difference this holiday season our minds turned to the kids at CASA, where many kids are being shuttled from place to place with no real house to call home.   So this…

The “Aha” Moment of Justice

Have you seen those commercials, the ones where someone talks about their “Aha” moment for Mutual of Omaha? They started a couple years ago and have always been brilliant in our eyes. The clean and clear messaging, the explicit sharing of a personal story. We recently saw this one and it spoke to us, on a justice level, as it is the same reason we are consistently trying so hard…

The Giving Generation

During a challenging economic time the ME ME ME generation is surprising trend forecasters by doing the opposite of what some might think. Instead of being stingy with their money, they are time and time again opening their wallets. But the Millennials are not opening their wallets for just any given reason.

Too Sad. Too True. Too Wrong to Continue.

Sometimes the greatest challenge is to honestly witness your life. And in my role as Executive Director of The Justice Project, I wanted to bring back an honest report on some of what I have seen, heard, learned and felt. But rest assured this is not going to be a travelogue. Rather it will be a series of reality snap shots that have deeply touched my life and my heart,…
