Justice Office - SJW
This is a position with the CSJ Justice Office. Our work of “Creating a More Just World for All” is grounded in the CSJs deep commitment to community, spirituality and justice. The CSJ Justice Office is vital in animating and supporting the community’s vibrant Justice Commission, their ten (10) working and task groups, and the overall work for systemic change.
In this position the St. Joseph Worker (SJW) will engage in reflecting, educating, relationship building, partnering, advocating and acting for justice. This work transforms ourselves and challenges interlocking systems of oppression in order to promote systemic change. The SJW will primarily support the work, including administrative tasks, of the CSJ Justice Office and Commission with limited service opportunities with other CSJ ministry projects and partners in order to more deeply ground our work. The SJW will have the opportunity to enhance skills, learning new ones and become an essential member of our small Justice team. This position requires a passion for justice, self-direction, creativity, humility, and an openness to accepting and reciprocating feedback as a team player.
