Proverbs 31:9 teaches that God expects us to speak up on behalf of the vulnerable in our society to those who make the civil laws by which we live. We must be the ones to speak for those who are oppressed and poor, who cannot plead for themselves nor pay others to plead for them. You can join the great tradition of Jewish social justice advocates from Moses to Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel who spoke out in defense of morality and justice.
