Joining Hands at a Crossroads

The Joining Hands Initiative of the Presbyterian Church (USA) Hunger Program is a new way to mobilize people in focused campaigns to tackle systemic causes of hunger both in the United States and abroad as a witness to the wholeness of God’s creation.  Rather than replicate project-based mission, the goal of Joining Hands is to organize ourselves in both the northern and southern hemispheres to campaign for change in a globalized world. We look together at the immense troubles we all face on a small planet and pull together in prayer, research, repentance, action and in a process of mutual transformation that reflects our shared commitment to global peace and justice.

Joining Hands has now identified 3 major areas of focus:

  • Food and Land Justice – access to land is necessary for food sovereignty
  • Water and Extractives – much of the water work that Joining Hands does is to address contamination caused by mining industries
  • Trade – trade policies affect all of the Joining Hands countries and work
