What Makes the Center for Public Justice Different?
CPJ is a nonpartisan Christian organization engaged in public policy development and civic education. Our mission is to serve God, advance justice, and transform public life. Rather than supporting the polarized views of issue-oriented, short-term, pragmatic politics that dominate today’s government, we work towards the soundness of public institutions, the art of long-term constitutional statecraft, and the common good of the republic as a whole.
What is Public Justice?
Why does public justice matter?
Christian & Democratic
Our mission is threefold:
Equip Citizens: Through our publications, speeches, and programs, the Center for Public Justice inspires citizens with a Christian perspective and equips them with tools for civic responsibility.
Develop Leaders: Through our leadership development program, the Center for Public Justice encourages citizens with talents for public service, nurtures public officials, and honors model public servants.
Shape Policy: To help shape policy, the Center for Public Justice conducts research, crafts proposals, and advocates reforms. Staff members advise public officials, submit briefs in court cases, and educate the public about new policies.
What We Do
Right now, the United States is facing a maternal health crisis. Christians have the opportunity and duty to support policies, like extending Medicaid coverage to a full year after birth, that honor the dignity of pregnant women and their children.
