Shalom committee is now “Voices for Justice”

Congregation Shalom of Fox Point has changed the name of its Social Justice Committee to “Voices for Justice.”

The committee promotes social justice, as when it sent out an email recognizing Martin Luther King Day. The name change is to prevent confusing it with Shalom’s Social Action Committee, which mobilizes volunteers to address issues like food insecurity and racial bias.

“After brainstorming alternatives, we concluded that Voices for Justice best captured our mission,” said Ruth Irvings, of the Voices for Justice committee.
