Community + Justice + Spirituality + Young Adults
What are Justice Cafés?
Justice Cafés are discussion groups for young adults who wish to build community, act for justice and deepen their spirituality. During the third week of every month, Justice Café groups meet at local cafés to share coffee and conversation. Participants dialogue about issues of global concern and reflect on ways they can act for change. After the Justice Café, participants can use this website to find resources and media related to the month's topic. They can also connect with young adults from other locations to share reflections and insights.
Who participates in Justice Cafés?
The Justice Café program is designed for young adults in their 20s and 30s. Café locations range from coffee shops to college campuses and can be found across the United States, as well as in Africa.
How do Justice Cafés work?
Each location has a host who stays in contact with IPJC. At the beginning of every month, IPJC sends each host a kit, which includes a ready-to-use discussion guide and instructions on how to lead a Café. The host is then responsible for reserving a location, promoting monthly Cafés and facilitating the dialogue. After the Café, IPJC encourages participants to share and connect with other locations online. IPJC provides all the materials and resources that a host needs to start a group. It's so easy!
