Demand social justice!

“Poverty is not fate, it is a condition; it is not a misfortune, it is an injustice. It is the result of social structures and mental and cultural categories, it is linked to the way in which society has been built, in its various manifestations.”

Gustavo Gutiérrez, born in Peru, John Cardinal O’Hara Professor of Theology at Notre Dame University and Kellogg Institute Faculty Fellow

“Poverty is not an act of nature…but a historically driven by social and economic factors. Real service to the poor…requires listening to those most affected by poverty.”

Dr Paul Farmer, medical anthropologist
