The Charleston Area Justice Ministry—CAJM—is a growing network of Faith Based Congregations who are culturally, economically, geographically and religiously diverse.  We come together to make the Charleston area a more just place to live. Member congregations (currently 28) work together to empower marginalized people in our communities. We accomplish this by conducting research, education and then publically addressing the root causes of, and solutions to, poverty and injustice in our communities. CAJM is unique in its approach in that it transforms the systems that cause suffering by holding local officials accountable for resolving these inequities and injustices.
