Doing Justice Initiative

The Doing Justice Initiative (DJI) is a partnership between the Great Plains Conference and two national experts in community change.

Direct Action & Research Training Center

Western Organization of Resource Councils

With $2.1 million in seed money from the Great Plains Conference, DART and WORC have committed from 2020 to 2026 to build a network of non-profit justice organizations across Nebraska and Kansas for United Methodists to join in both our cities and rural areas. These organizations will provide a vehicle for our congregations to work for solutions to complex local needs.
