Her Name Is…Healing Hearts

On March 28th Praxis Connections, Nyack College School of Social Work, and Treasures NYC held an event focusing on the influencing factors, scale, and scope of the sex in the industry and a special focus on highlighting the effective work of the Treasures NYC ministry which equips women to build relationships with women working in the NYC strip clubs.

Collaborative Justice and Mercy

The Challenge

How do we love our neighbor in our fast paced, disconnected, polarized, and technological world? Our neighbor the widow, orphan, incarcerated, immigrant, hungry, homeless, elderly, ill, and poor. How do we do it with love and mercy that is rooted in justice? How would we know if we are truly loving them and doing it effectively? Most efforts to solve today's problems operate in silos disconnected from one another. They are not working together to show the love, mercy, and justice of God.

The Solution

Praxis Connections creates impact by connecting leaders, strategies, and resources that incorporates a theory & methodology of change we call Collaborative Justice & Mercy. Collaborative Justice & Mercy is rooted in the biblical values of Micah 6:8 and Matthew 25:31-46 and envelopes the following:

1) Shared Vision/Mission
2) Aligned Action
3) Shared Knowledge
4) Empowered Execution
5) Shared Metrics
6) Models & Mobilization of Resources

Collaborative Justice & Mercy flow out of a shared love of Christ, neighbor, neighborhood, and action.
