"Advocating Justice and Equity: A Policy Resource Guide on Welfare, Work and Economic Policy" …
… a new resource from the NCC’s Economic Justice and Domestic Hunger Program Ministry. This substantial booklet offers concise, readable answers – from a faith perspective – to questions on current welfare policy and how it was shaped, the real employment picture, and the growing gap between rich and poor, both globally and domestically.

It distills an expert analysis from the work of economists, social welfare analysts and Christian ethicists, linking the welfare debate to the changing nature of work and its rewards, describing how growing economic inequality affects not only welfare recipients but all of America.  Available for $2.50. Order number EJ0002. Request bulk discount by calling (212) 870-2385.

"Africa: In Bondage to Debt" …
… a new six-page study/action guide in the "Facts Have Faces" series. It explores the crushing impact of foreign debts on Africa’s poorest nations. Many spend more each year on debt repayment than on primary education and health care combined. The guide profiles faith communities and other caring persons around the world who have joined in a vigorous Jubilee 2000 campaign to forgive the debt. ED 9853.  All "Facts Have Faces" cost $.30 each; 4/$1. Please prepay. For bulk prices, call 1-800-297-1516.
