LINKING OUR NEIGHBORS for global economic justice

Jubilee USA draws its strength as a network through strong connections from diverse faith communities and grassroots organizations that share our values of social justice.

Jubilee USA is calling on all of our individual supporters, Jubilee Congregations and community partners to reach out to social justice organizations and faith communities in your towns, cities and neighborhoods where you do not have strong relationships.

By using the vision of Jubilee, debt cancellation, transformed global financial institutions, and a socially just world, we can continue to bring communities together and strengthen our mission.  Build stronger local community relationships at the same time as you work towards eradicating global poverty!

Get Involved!

Jubilee USA encourages you to cultivate relationships with members in your community unfamiliar with Jubilee justice.  You can link hands with your neighbors in a number of exciting ways:


Coordinate one meeting:

Take one step -- set up one meeting with a new faith community or community organization about the issues of Jubilee.  If your own community has not become involved start there!

Make building new Jubilee connections and this meeting your action on the Jubilee Weekdn!
