4. To seek to transform unjust structures of society

Click on the videos below to learn how this Mark of Mission informs the work of General Synod.

Christine Hills, communications associate for the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), talks about how the “Facing AIDS, Facing Reality” exhibit was an inspiring and educational example of how to “transform unjust structures.” The photography exhibit, co-produced by PWRDF and Anglican Video, travelled to every diocese in Canada and to 50 different communities, raising awareness and generating funds for people living with HIV and AIDS.
Nancy Hurn, General Synod archivist, believes in “open, equal access to records.” Her work is an example of “transforming unjust structures.”
Justice Camp is a week-long immersion experience focused around a specific social justice issue, and reflected upon in the light of Biblical study and prayer. This year’s Justice Camp theme is poverty. The program is going to “transform unjust structures” by addressing the issues around economical, spiritual, and physical poverty.

The Right Rev. George Elliott, suffragan bishop of Toronto (York-Simcoe), explains how the Anglican Journal helps “to transform unjust structures of society.”
 Donna Bomberry, coordinator for Indigenous Ministries, talks about how her work at General Synod helps “to transform unjust structures of society.”
 Temba House is kind of a sanctuary in Mthantha, South Africa, where people with HIV/AIDS go to find dignity before they die. As this video shows, Temba House “transforms unjust structures” by providing a home for people often considered to be outcasts.
 The Rev. Maylanne Maybee, ecojustice coordinator, explains in this video how General Synod’s ethical investments are one way of “transforming unjust structures of society.”
