We all need a little help tostay woke. Here is where you’ll find thoughtful posts and useful links, tips, statistics, articles, and resources related to social justice issues nationally and globally. In the words of my twelfth grade science teacher, “Ignorance is the enemy.” And in the words of my Father, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:…“. Though the scripture (Hosea 4:6) is specifically talking about not knowing God (and still rings true), we see the destructive results of lack of knowledge all around us – from policies that disproportionately negatively impact the poor and minorities to the ill- or misinformed people that defend them.
