Children face too many tough situations today: broken immigration policies, hunger, school shootings, mass incarceration, human trafficking, failing schools, conscription as child soldiers in wars around the world. Despite the harsh realities, there is still hope! And YOU can play a vital role in keeping that hope alive!
Let Your Light Shine challenges readers to engage in their own work of justice for and with children. Inspired by the contributions of leaders like Marian Wright Edelman, founder of the Children’s Defense Fund, the authors present ways to engage in works of justice that offer life, meaning, and hope to our children and youth.
