Center for Reflective Action

A restorative and reparative force for union of neighbor with neighbor.

Welcome to the Center for Reflective Action website.

A  place where tools and resources for examining and addressing social justice issues can be found.
We look to develop and support a model of reflective-action through the work here.
The website offers reflections, actions,teachings, and a newsletter – focused on social justice issues.
It is hoped that these offerings will be seen as an invitation to deepen ones understanding
and perhaps become more engaged in these matters that impact all.

The History

Thirty years ago the Sisters of St. Joseph operated the Center for Reflective Action in Holyoke, MA. This center offered education and advocacy for peace and social justice issues.
In time, the Center closed, but the work continued on.
This website is a resurrection of the Center; no longer in a physical space – but here in “cyber-space” we seek to fulfill our goals and mission by sifting through the multitudes of confusing and sometimes questionable information to offer guidance for your journey.
