A Spiritual Awakening
Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow, states: “There is something much greater at stake in justice work than we often acknowledge. I no longer believe we can ‘win’ justice simply by filing lawsuits, flexing our political muscles or boosting voter turnout. Without a moral or spiritual awakening, we will remain forever trapped in political games fueled by fear, greed and the hunger for power.”
We aim to partner with organizations that are nurturing this awakening.
