Liberation theology is a movement in Christian theology that originated from the Catholic Church in Latin America during the 1950s and 1960s. It grew out of the needs of the poor to view Jesus’ message of social justice and economic equality as central to Christian theology.
The term 'liberation theology' was coined by the Peruvian priest Gustavo Gutiérrez in 1971. However, the theme of liberation in African-American history and culture was already evident in some black protestant churches as Black Christians understood God as ‘on the side of those in need of freedom from oppression and social injustices.’ Liberation theology grew out of a spiritual revolution that was happening simultaneously in Latin America and North America.
“By awarding me the We Are Rio scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden, which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school-- learning,” said Ahmed. “Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.”Rio Salado employees come together every spring to raise funds for the We Are Rio Employee Giving Campaign. During the 2016 campaign, the college raised more than $22,000 for student scholarships.
