Social Justice Projects


The Shir Hadash Social Justice committee engages in sustained effort to bring about systemic social change through grass roots organizing. An important part of its work involves participation in a faith-based community organizing in collaboration with a network of other congregations in the South Bay.

The Social Justice committee is sometimes referred to as SHOC or the Shir Hadash Organizing Committee. In the PACT (People Acting in Community Together) network we belong to, each member congregation’s social justice group is referred to as an “organizing committee.” The Social Justice Committee known as the Shir Hadash Local Organizing Committee (SHOC) should not be confused with the Social Action Committee, which is a separate committee with a different mission.
