The “Justice Revival” in Dallas last November brought together hundreds of Dallas area churches—many of which had never before collaborated—in a three-day event focused on putting faith into action for justice. The goal of the event, which culminated with a “day of action” when more than 2,000 volunteers fanned out across Dallas to work on a variety of projects, was to build partnerships among churches and others to work on long-term change in education, housing, and other issues important to poor people in the Greater Dallas area. “Our message has always been that this is the beginning,” Aaron Graham, national field organizer and Justice Revival director for Sojourners, said of the November gathering. “The work starts now.” We asked Dallas-based journalist Catherine Cuellar to take a look at what has happened in the city since the November Justice Revival.
