We are overwhelmed with grief at the continued neglect, mistreatment, and violence committed against the black community and people of color. As followers of Jesus, we can't stand by silently while our brothers and sisters fight for their lives every day simply because of the color of their skin. 

We are facilitating conversations with our adults, youth, and children so that we are no longer sitting in ignorance, but wake up to the injustice happening all around us. Join us in seeking justice by taking the first step... listening.

He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
    and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
    and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8 (NRSV)
