Give Support. Find Support.

Liberty & Justice
We wanted to share some resources for supporting protesters and Black-owned businesses during this time and beyond, and to find legal help as well as mental health support. Keep in mind that justice action may look different for different people. This outline put together by Rev Elizabeth Nguyen as part of the Love Resists online course provides a framework to work through what action might look like for you. As she points out, “Effective justice action requires risk, courage and discernment.”
