“Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis is a towering love warrior and freedom fighter for precious poor people in the bowels of the American empire. This rich collection of essays is a powerful cacophony of prophetic voices that prefigure our beloved community.”

“Put down what you are doing and read this book now. It is a bridge between what Muslims call deen and dunya: the cosmic world and the material world. We Cry Justice will inspire you to organize for the world that God calls us to create.” –Eboo Patel, founder and president, Interfaith Youth Core
