Courageous Advocacy

‘What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk
humbly with your God’ (Micah 6:8)

 

By way of a working definition, when using the term ‘courageous advocacy’ we are referring to the act of speaking out against an issue of injustice, often on behalf of those whose voice is not heard. Speaking out, at whatever level this takes place, requires an element (and sometimes a great deal) of courage! Becoming a courageous advocate for change, therefore, must involve being informed about an issue and it must move beyond simply knowing, to saying and doing.

Educating for courageous advocacy must embody an ethos of action-taking,
challenging injustice and becoming agents of change in the transformation of ourselves, our relationships and our communities from the local level to the global.

At Wrockwardine Wood CE Junior School, we are working to develop our links with charitable organisations. We know that we, as a loving and courageous school community, can make a real change in the face of some of the seemingly insurmountable giants the world faces.
