There are two different, but not unrelated, emphases of the club: social justice and environmental justice. From the beginning, God saw His creation was good and He created humans to steward, develop and enjoy that world. We are called to work towards the establishment of justice and shalom, both in creation care and social justice. The club will seek to balance these two emphases without underemphasizing one or the other, because in fact they cannot be separated or ranked against each other.
While Dordt College tries to present a distinctly reformed vision, the Justice Matters Club is not bound to think only within that reformed tradition. There are a great number of Christian perspectives on Justice which the Club will draw on and critically engage, whether on not they are labeled reformed.
