The Racial Justice Coalition has created a new webpage on its website that highlights two of its projects. Go here for an overview, but for specifics for each, go to the links for Every Black Voice and the Government Accountability Project. Each is open for people to support and join.
For nearly three years, our partners at UU Justice Ministry of NC have offered weekly Action Hours on Friday mornings. These hours address social justice issues impacting our state and country. Along the way, they have deepened relationships, grown as social justice organizers, and had a lot of fun! The organizer, Rev. Lisa Garcia-Sampson, offers a Friday Action Hour Weekly Email that includes a promo of the week’s actions, the Zoom link and the link to their Actions Google Doc.
