  • Laura A. Stivers, School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, Dominican University of California

In her book, Disrupting Homelessness: Alternative Christian Approaches, Laura Stivers explores ways that people of faith can build a prophetic movement to overcome homelessness and economic injustice. She calls for churches to go beyond charity and develop a new level of solidarity with homeless people.

The ultimate goal is not only to create homes and economic justice for all, but also to nurture a new sense of compassion and sharing as an alternative to a society based on self-centered materialism.
