Making Faith Public: How Faith-Based Social Justice Groups in Regina use Religious Resources
Description:

This study uses interviews with leaders of faith-based justice groups in Regina to examine how they apply their religious resources for the goal of social change, and in this way make religious faith public.

There has been a global resurgence of religion in the public sphere in recent decades, but not all such religion is violent or conservative. Indeed, many instances of religious resurgence are the activities of groups interested in social transformation for the benefit of all, not only of their co-religionists, and who work well with groups of other ideological commitments. Regina has a handful of such groups - some locally based and some which are the local branches of national organizations - so Regina may be a microcosm of larger phenomena.
