Recommended Resources for Social Justice


A note from Nika, from 5/31

Dear Ones,

I am typing this a few minutes before our beloved city goes into an imposed curfew. The last few weeks have brought so much sadness, anger, confusion, and lament. I am encouraged by so many of you that have reached out asking for recommended resources about dismantling racism and upholding justice. I figured it might help to consolidate my responses and provide a resource for all of us to continue to learn and grow. These days I am growing more convinced that the Christian life is marked by simultaneous seasons of sorrow and joy, growth and rest, anger and forgiveness. God is with us and for us, even and especially now. 

But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
Amos 5:24
