From Our Sacred Ground in Action (SGIA) Ministry

Action One:

Action Two:
Aspen Institute Religion and Society program Executive Director Simian Jeet Singh shares his Brief But Spectacular” reflection on his lived experience and how a society with eyes open wide can confront bias and create empathy. Visit
