This program year, our theme is Moving from Understanding to Transformation: Affecting Change Together Guided by God. Through these forums, we will explore capabilities we need to build and norms we need to examine to be effective partners in transforming our community.
The Social Justice Forums provide opportunities not only to become more informed about community needs but also opportunities to better support our neighbors.
