HOW DO WE RECONCILE
JOY + SORROW
IN A WORLD THAT IS BOTH
BEAUTIFUL + DESPERATELY BROKEN?
CAN WE PUT THE “HUMAN” BACK INTO “HUMANITARIANISM”?
IS THERE A WAY TO LET GO OF DISILLUSIONMENT, HOLD ON TO HOPE, + REDEEM OUR PAIN FOR GOOD?
From the remote villages of Cambodia to Canadian inner-cities, from courthouses and orphanages to brothels and street corners comes a fresh new voice that probes an inspiring conversation about the trials and triumphs of seeking justice.
Author and non-profit director Katie Bergman explores her own coming-of-age journey through redemptive disillusionment, tempered idealism, and recalibrated hope for humanitarian work in her compelling first book. When Justice Just Is tells stories from the humanitarian field that will warm and break your heart while challenging us all to see that being kinder to the world means being kinder to ourselves, too.

“This book will help keep generations of world-changers in the game, instead of tapping out because the struggle is too great. If you are a veteran difference-maker or someone just exploring this way of life, this book might just help save your life … and the lives of the people you serve.”
“This book [will] benefit those who run non-profits, those who work for them, and those who fund them.”
“We beg for a voice that relinquishes us from the weight of helping and Katie has challenged us to find beauty and rest amongst the thorns of working for justice. Katie’s journey gives us permission to live justly while living well and the community is empowered to live beautifully.”
“Katie Bergman challenges not just the what, but probes deep into the questions of how and why. Her voice is prophetic in that she wakes us up and helps us see the pursuit of justice in new, sometimes painful, yet ultimately hopeful ways. Her insights are keen and her wisdom is deep. We need to listen to this voice, this call to pursue justice in a holistic way.”
