ProJustice teams up with Habitat for Humanity

ProJustice Carolina is filling the void created recently when a Seattle church declined to come to Greenville County to work with Habitat for Humanity because of County Council's passage of the anti-gay resolution.

    In a continuing effort to heal the community, ProJustice Carolina is joining forces with Habitat for Humanity to build a house in Greenville.

    "Until County Council produces the ultimate healing of the hurt created by the resolution," said ProJustice co-chair Jim Cohn, "ProJustice will promote that healing by trying to fill the gaps created by the withdrawal of others from good works in Greenville.

    "We deeply oppose the resolution, but we're equally opposed to the idea of allowing it to hurt our community more than it already has. We'll try to undo the harm created by the resolution by volunteering to help Greenville grow and thrive through community education, community service and the consistent advocacy of tolerance and respect for diversity."

    ProJustice was initially formed to seek reversal of the Greenville County Council's anti-gay resolution. It is comprised of people living in Greenville County who share a common concern for respect, equal rights and acceptance of all people.

    Habitat for Humanity is a nondenominational Christian charity dedicated to providing low-cost homes for the poor.

    ProJustice will work on the Habitat house at Cone Crest Court from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 21. For details, call ProJustice Carolina at 864-370-0089. b
