Leadership For Social Justice
Guidance & Resources to Equip You
What is our call today in the midst of all the unrest and violence? To do justice, to love mercy and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8). It is to respond by doing what we can to make things right. It is to name what is wrong and unjust and not be content to let it continue to fester, multiply or even exist. Here we’ve curated the leadership resources to help you do just that.
Now's the Time to Listen, Learn & Grow
In our current environment, we want to be very intentional about doing everything we can to learn and grow in the area of racial justice and diversity, recognizing the voices who bring years of experience and expertise to these topics. We’re honored to learn from experts like Bryan Stevenson, Bozoma Saint John, Gary Haugen, Albert Tate and Danielle Strickland, among several others.
May their voices challenge and edify your leadership in this season, and beyond.
