The Awakening Project

Listening to Prophetic Voices that Inspire Us.

Mission & Vision

Our Mission: To listen to prophetic voices as a way to awaken ourselves to the radical call of our faith in our actions for social justice and transformative change.

Our Vision:  To find ways for people of different faiths and backgrounds to ‘pull together’ for a more just society.

Our Focus: is based on the principle that ‘a society will be defined by how it treats its most vulnerable’. We do this by sharing and reflecting on a diversity of voices and actions for social justice.
