Social Action Leadership Team

The Social Action Leadership Team (SALT) is the Spirit-led social justice ministry of the Chapel of the Resurrection at Valparaiso University in which students in community seek to embody the Christian call to be the ‘salt of the earth’ (Matthew 5:13).

Hey all,

First off, I want to thank you all, for EVERYTHING.

Second, RUBY, Pastor Jim's puppy, will be paying us a visit tonight. Since most of our events are done, it will be a good time to relax and destress from classes, to create some community, and to finish strong with the WRC and C4C!

Finally, a couple words of encouragement.

1 Corinthians 9:24-27 24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize

So please come to SALT tonight! Let's have fun, and give people a reason to give to our final social justice cause for the year!

As the Chair of SALT at Valparaiso, I wanted to make you and your organization aware of Interfaith Youth Core's summer Interfaith Leadership Institute. There will two this summer: 

Chicago @ Northwestern University from August 10-12th


New York @ NYU from June 21-23


ILIs are a great chance for student's interested in interfaith work to practice leadership skills and learn more about different religious and non-religious traditions. You can find out more information here:


Our president and founder, Eboo Patel, still talks about his MLK Day visit a year ago to Valpo! I hope you'll pass this email around and please let me know if you have any further questions! Thanks so much!

[Salt-l] You Have Been Chosen to Receive an Honor from SALT

Hey All!

IT IS HERE!  $2000 WEEK!

We have a lot going on this week, and so I have dubbed you all SUPER- SALTers! Welcome! It is an honor to have you as a SUPER-SALTer! 

Requirements of being a SUPER-SALTer:
1) Wear your SALT gear as much as possible, including your KSK bracelet!

2) Ask a friend to SALT for Tuesday, and out to icecream afterwards!

3) Sign up for table slots to advertise in Harassment Hallway on the handy dandy sign up sheet here:

4) Bring $25 to donate!

5) Share all our stuff on Facebook and Twitter! It is a great way to procrastinate all that awful homework!

6) Ask your professors for some class announcement time! You are with hundreds of people a day who don't know about our 8 artists! Tell them about KSK!

7) Call and remind your parents/grandparents/third cousins twice removed to donate and pray for our cause!


It is exciting! Go SUPER-SALTers GO!
