People of faith in action

Members of Jubilee Debt Campaign come from all faiths and none. The Multifaith Project ran between 2009-2014 to raise awareness within a range of faith communities about tackling the issue of International Debt and global poverty. Some of the results of the project have been archived in this document. 

In 2014 we co-produced a booklet containing six bible studies for Christians and churches exploring faith and economics. You might also be interested in the following links:
