We derive our name, Justice and Mercy, and our mission from the scriptural verse Micah 6:8, “what does the Lord require of you? To do justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” We live out this call in our work at JAMLAC by seeking justice for people struggling with poverty and oppression. We do this in a way that affirms the client’s dignity and strengthens their capacity to positively direct their own lives.
