Participants can take part in justice and discipleship initiatives locally or abroad, attend meetings about the fight for justice, and connect with Watermark Justice’s ministry partners:

  • Advocates for Community Transformation (ACT) empowers citizens of West Dallas, through legal advocacy, to combat drugs, prostitution, and crime-ridden properties in their neighborhoods. ACT gives both legal professionals and many others the chance to help transform a community through connecting with residents and participating in events.
