Do Justice.

I met Shawn Manley, president and CEO of Rooftop 519, at The Justice Conference last year. Named after Luke chapter 5, verse 19, Rooftop’s mission is “healing the sickest kids in the world in the name of Christ.”

Rooftop was founded in October 2010 and aggressively pursues solutions for children who desperately need medical attention.

Artists Inspiring Action partnered with The Justice Conference and Rooftop 519 for something truly special at the conference Feb. 22 and 23 in Philly. They are curating an interactive art installation in conjunction with the conference with the intention to encourage people to “do justice.”

The art piece will represent eight justice themes: war, slavery, homelessness, hunger, health, sanitation, education and family.

Those attending the conference will have the opportunity to participate in completing the art piece by hand painting a pre-printed canvas and filling free-form areas with their own contributions.

The second part of the project involves producing a book which highlights the stories of people pursuing justice.

To learn all about this project and how you can contribute please visit the project’s site.
