Be a Part of Someone Bigger

“For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.” Matthew 25:42-43 (NIV)

Identify what is yours to do. Each of us can do something to help eliminate racial injustices.  Look into organizations who are taking actions locally and find one that’s a good fit for what you’re called to do.  

Here are a few to get you started:

Poor People’s Campaign: https://www.poorpeoplescampaign.org/
A National Call for Moral Revival - Brings coalitions of faith from over 40 states together to confront systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, militarism and the war economy, and the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism.


Douglass Leadership Institute: http://www.dlinstitute.org/
A national organization with local roots.  They focus on 1) Strengthening the Black Family, 2) Supporting Criminal Justice Reform, and 3) Securing Economic and Educational Opportunity.
