To hope is to give yourself to the future - and that commitment to the future is what makes the present inhabitable.  - Rebecca Solnit 

Now is a time of brutalizing violence and despair. At times like this, it can be challenging to feel hope and keep our spirits alive. 

We invite you to our Faith Roundtable on Thursday, July 21st at 6p.m. at our office in Harlem to gather in community, repair our spirits,  restore hope, and keep the light of justice alive in our actions and our hearts.
