Social Justice

Building peace and working for justice is central to our calling as God’s people.  This gets carried out in many ways at Augustana, including a monthly free community breakfast, partnership with Lutheran Social Services of Illinois, advocacy work, community work days, and hosting community groups in our building.  

Hyde Park Refugee Project

Augustana and its members are leaders in a project sponsoring refugee families in Hyde Park, including those fleeing the civil war and violence in Syria.  Augustana provides space in its building for the refugees, volunteers and interns, and Augustana members volunteer to work with and accompany the refugees in many ways.
