Regional Justice Collaboratives


Social Justice Collaboratives in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati are groups of parishes and Catholic organizations working together on pro-life and social justice issues, receiving staff support from the Catholic Social Action Office. Currently there are three collaboratives in the archdiocese. Each operates a little differently, but the goal of all three groups is to make a greater impact on a select number of social justice issues and to enhance social justice efforts at the parish level by building community, fostering collaboration, and sharing resources.

Dayton-based Social Justice Collaborative: Weavers of Justice

Weavers new logoThe Weavers of Justice consist of 20 parishes,
6 Catholic agencies and 1 organization that work together on justice issues.

The 2014 – 2015  initiatives of the Weavers of Justice are focused on the death penalty/restorative justice and legislative advocacy/food sufficiency issues.

We will continue our advocacy for reform of Ohio’s death penalty.

In the Fall of 2014 Weavers conducted an All Parish meeting on Legislative Advocacy.  For food sufficiency we are encouraging Greater Dayton residents to participate in a Hunger Solidarity Challenge.  For more information, click here.
