From the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin, to institutionalized racial targeting in Ferguson, MO, USA to a series of African-American youth being killed by authorities in various cities, to voting rights being threatened, to remembering the struggles of the Civil Rights era during the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery march, we continually are witnessing events that impact human dignity, security, and well-being.  These reminders let us know that our work for justice is not yet complete; there is much more to do.

 

We invite you to join the call and listen to voices that will inspire and challenge us to keep our movement for justice alive and strong.
