Injustice, sexual abuse, and sex-trafficking are global issues, pushing migration and causing humanitarian crises around the world. Honduras, known as the deadliest place for women on Earth, is pushing an immigration crisis at our U.S. border because of gangs and violence against women, children and other vulnerable groups. Gracie Murphree shares her life on the front line of this battle against violence, gangs and corruption in Honduras during the last fourteen years and how God's heart for justice is what motivates her and her husband to continue - even in the face of possible death. Journey to Justice, though, is not just a story about God's heart for justice and his call for Christians to stand in the gap. It is a beautiful story of God's redemption demonstrated in the lives of the women and children who have been rescued and restored - and also in Murphree's life after having been a victim of violence herself. "God loves using the broken to change the world," Murphree says. "He redeems our lives and calls us into a place where he then uses us to redeem the lives of others." This is also a story of obedience and how being obedient to God's leading brings great success and blessing, even when he doesn't tell us all of the details.

Morgan backed her words with action. As a New Deal Democrat, she worked to abolish the poll tax and establish a federal antilynching law. She rarely hesitated to appear in integrated settings, and years before the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott, she was regularly confronting bus drivers over their mistreatment of black riders. Morgan's letters had consequences: she and the newspapers that published them were vilified and threatened. Although the trustees of the Montgomery Public Library, where Morgan worked, resisted pressure to fire her, a cross was burned in her yard, and friends, neighbors, former students, and colleagues shunned her.

Kim Workman: Journey Towards Justice

Life is nothing more than a collection of stories – but within those stories there are threads of meaning that, over a seventy-year journey, make sense of one human life. Kim Workman grew up in the Wairarapa, son of a Pākehā mother and Māori father. His whakapapa comes from Ngāti Kahungunu and Rangitāne; Pāpāwai Marae near Greytown is the place to which he always returns. Jazz musician, policeman, public servant, prison manager, prominent campaigner for restorative justice – Kim’s life is full of passion and spirit, research and writing, action and commitment. His childhood was shaped by life in a country town, by family and Māori community, somewhat by school and rather more by playing jazz. Working as a police officer in the 1960s prompted his engagement with justice reform – and brought into sharp relief the racism that he has challenged throughout his working life. His career in prison management strengthened his commitment to prisoners’ welfare. Kim’s visionary work in justice reform began when he became director of Prison Fellowship New Zealand, and ultimately found expression in the Rethinking Crime and Punishment project and in supporting the activist group JustSpeak. His thinking draws on both his Christian faith and his Māori heritage: he was instrumental in establishing one of the first faith-based prison units, and his understanding of restorative justice draws strongly on Māori customary practice. Journey Towards Justice is an eloquent account of a life that is at once ordinary and exceptional, told with warmth and honesty. There are dark moments and hilarious ones, achievements and failures. Above all, there is love, compassion, vision, and a profound determination to bring justice to all.

Fighting Tradition

A Marine's Journey to Justice

Determined to be a U.S. Marine Corps officer, Bruce Yamashita enrolled in Officer Candidate School, where he was the target of persistent racial harassment by officers and staff. After enduring nine weeks of emotional and physical abuse, Yamashita was disenrolled in April 1989 kicked out of the Marine Corps because of the color of his skin. Fighting Tradition is Yamashita s own story of his courageous struggle to expose a pattern of racial discrimination against minorities that has existed at various levels of the Corps. With the support of a broad coalition of community and civil rights organizations, the Hawaii-born law school graduate fought a five-year-long legal, political, and media battle against the military establishment that ended in his commissioning as a captain and the revision of Marine Corps policies and procedures. Fighting Tradition not only is a moving story of personal sacrifice and vision, but contributes also both directly and indirectly to our understanding of the complexities of institutional racism in a politically conservative, demographically shifting society. It is a unique window into the dynamics of race, government, and the law and a stirring reminder of the importance of political mobilization by the individual to achieve justice. "

Christianity's demographics, vitality, and influence have tipped markedly toward the global South and East. Addressing this seismic shift, one of today's leading Christian scholars reflects on what he has learned about justice through his encounters with world Christianity. Philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff's experiences in South Africa, the Middle East, and Honduras have shaped his views on justice through the years. In this book he offers readers an autobiographical tour, distilling the essence of his thoughts on the topic. After describing how he came to think about justice as he does and reviewing the theory of justice he developed in earlier writings, Wolterstorff shows how deeply embedded justice is in Christian Scripture. He reflects on the difficult struggle to right injustice and examines the necessity of just punishment. Finally, he explores the relationship between justice and beauty and between justice and hope. This book is the first in the Turning South series, which offers reflections by eminent Christian scholars who have turned their attention and commitments toward the global South and East.

From the New York Times bestselling author of I Dissent comes a biographical graphic novel about celebrated Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a modern feminist icon—a leader in the fight for equal treatment of girls and women in society and the workplace. She blazed trails to the peaks of the male-centric worlds of education and law, where women had rarely risen before. Ruth Bader Ginsburg has often said that true and lasting change in society and law is accomplished slowly, one step at a time. This is how she has evolved, too. Step by step, the shy little girl became a child who questioned unfairness, who became a student who persisted despite obstacles, who became an advocate who resisted injustice, who became a judge who revered the rule of law, who became…RBG.

Martin and Bobby follows the lives and experiences of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, showing how and where their work intersected and how their initially wary relationship evolved from challenging and testing each other to finally "arriving in the same place" as allies fighting poverty and racism. King's courage showed Kennedy how to act on one's moral principles, and Kennedy's growing awareness of the country's racial and economic divide gave King hope that the nation's leaders could truly support justice. Young readers will be quickly engaged by the alternating details of each man's final hours, before flashing back to compare their very different childhoods, young adult years, famous words and speeches, and rise to prominence. Full of compelling historic photos and including sidebars to extend learning, source notes, a bibliography, suggested places to visit, and a time line, Martin and Bobby is an invaluable addition to any student's or history buff's bookshelf.

A horrific personal account of rape and its consequences. On 25th August 2010 at 6.31 am I was raped by a 20 year old monster. He beat me, kicked me, strangled me and threw me against the walls of my bedroom. My body froze in terror but as he repeatedly raped me and sunk his teeth into my genitals, I somehow found the strength to kick him off . Covered in blood, I ran from this living nightmare as fast as I could, carrying my new puppy. With help from friends, I managed to call the police and report the monster but had to wait a year for the case to get to Crown Court. My physical injuries got better and the scars eventually healed. I had plastic surgery on my face and appeared normal on the outside. However, the events of that day have left me with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder with which I have now learned to live and I say to myself every day; ‘What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger’. I have described the events in graphic detail in this book, not to shock but in the hope it will help the reader understand the issues all victims of rape have to endure. I also hope that it will help politicians and those delivering justice in the courts that issuing lenient sentences does nothing to protect the vulnerable who have to live forever with the consequences while the perpetrators are often allowed to simply get on with their lives.
