Social Justice

The Episcopal Church Women have a long history for triumphing local and global issues affecting women and girls. Their work encompases migration issues, including the reasons for why people from other countries look for asylum, or a better life for themselves and their families in the United States.

They take a keen interest in local and national work regarding refugees and immigrants and how your parish can support persons detained at the borders or elsewhere.

Human Trafficking education using videos, articles, and lectures encompass a large portion of their social justice program. They work to provide a haven of kindness, understanding, and safety for victims of Human Trafficking. They are active in organizing rallies and demonstrations for the purpose of raising awareness of women’s causes as well as working with local and national lawmakers to implement legislation for the benefit of the family.

The Rev. Ema Rosero-Nordalm serves as a deacon in the Diocese of Massachusetts. She is humbled by the opportunity to work with congregations with diverse cultures and approaches her service to them and the Church with enthusiasm.

After 22 years as program coordinator and instructor in foreign language methodologies at Boston University, she has dedicated her work for the Latino Ministries of the Episcopal Church

Ema’s work influences a nationwide audience and reaches abroad through the supportive efforts of the Episcopal Church. She offers training that invites Latino communities to explore and advance their leadership skills; both spiritually and in the art of community organization.

As the Member at Large for Social Justice for the ECW Board, she invites Episcopal Church Women to join her during this triennial to share the justice work around Immigration, Human Trafficking and Racial Healing and Reconciliation. “We can all grow as a seed in our hearts to advocate, get involved and be part of the solution to end the suffering of so many communities in this country and beyond, and always with God’s Help.”

“I see so much from the community I see so much transformation.”

Our Social Justice focus includes immigration, human trafficking, and racial reconciliation.

Please share how you are making a difference in the world or how you wish to get involved with the ECW Social Justice ministries.

The ECW Social Justice Facebook page is a repository of the social justice ministries of all Episcopal Church Women.
