Social Justice Overview
Together we act in love – rooted in our principles and in our community, we find the energy and commitment to live our social justice values.
Everyone has a skill to bring to our table. You can serve a meal; advocate for those without a voice; support our Dreamers at Pioneer Elementary; there are so many ways to be part of our efforts. Stand on the Side of Love with us!
