The Student Advocates of Blessed Edmund Rice (SABER) is a group of Hendricken students who are committed to raising awareness through education of the community to eliminate the root causes of injustice in our world.
The mission of the Student Advocates of Blessed Edmund Rice (SABER) is to identify and advocate, through the education of the community, for those marginalized by poverty and injustice.
What is Advocacy?
The purpose of advocacy is to provide a voice for the voiceless and ultimately eliminate the root causes of injustice in society. While Christian Service aims to provide immediate assistance to those in need, advocacy aims to create considerable awareness for an issue, to the extent that the assistance is not needed in the first place. As the saying goes, “Give a man a fish, and you’ll feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you’ll feed him for a lifetime.”
