Compassionistas.net is a place where we can find, share and develop resources for nonviolent resistance to unjust powers: resources shaped by faith and tested in community.

 

My name's Keith Hebden and I am the Seeking Justice adviser for Mansfield Deanery and the author of "Seeking Justice: The Radical Compassion of Jesus". This website is being developed to support those who want to find ways to build a new world in the shell of the old one in their neighbourhoods.

Another world is possible.
