Peace exists where a voice of need is heard and answered.
Where the call to be educated is not blocked out by the need to survive.
Where jobs that pay enough to feed and house families exist.
A place where violence, guns, and prison are not choices born out of a deep and abiding need for justice and freedom.
A place where our beliefs demand our work.
A place where hope lives because together we are building a strong solid community. Together we are affirming that all of us are connected and each of us is important.
