New York Families Pursues Justice and Mercy

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8, ESV)

Christians are called to seek freedom and justice for those who experience oppression. New York Families affirms that Christians should be characterized by mercy and love toward our neighbors, concern and care for the needy, and protection of the vulnerable. Christians should consider others more important than ourselves (Philippians 2:3).

To us, proclaiming justice means helping New Yorkers to push for the eradication of human trafficking, for educational choice, and for an ethical and transparent government. Proclaiming mercy means equipping New Yorkers to oppose state-sponsored gambling, prostitution, drug legalization, and the promotion of confusion in regard to sex and gender identity.
