Who We Are:
Spirit in Action, the social justice group, was formed to serve people in our community, across the country and throughout the world to live in dignity and peace. Among the issues addressed are homelessness, immigration, women's rights, equality for all, gun control, refugees, just to name a few. We join with other organizations working in these areas. Our mission: Connect with the community to insure love and equality to all that are in need of light.

CHILDREN'S SHOES COLLECTION
Afghan refugees continue to be resettled here in San Diego. Most are still awaiting housing and living in hotels. Last week, 146 refugee children were finally enrolled in the San Diego Unified School District, and many are still in need of closed-toe shoes. This month, we will be partnering with Helping El Cajon Refugees to collect much needed children’s shoes. Please drop off your donations at the center during the month of February.
HELP THE EFFORT TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE
One of the top 10 social justice issues is climate change. With transportation responsible for nearly half of carbon emissions in San Diego, we have an opportunity to fund transit and active transportation infrastructure. Interfaith Coalition for Environmental Justice along with San Diego 360 Climate Action has organized two events to find out how you can be part of the change.
