From our Sacred Ground in Action ministry:

“Mapmakers choose what to include and exclude and how to display information to users…. [Black Counter-Mapping] is part of the broader Black creative tradition and political struggle.” For the entire Yes! Magazine article, go here

Prayer for Social Justice:

Almighty God, who created us in your own image: Grant us grace fearlessly to contend against evil and to make no peace with oppression; and, that we may reverently use our freedom, help us to employ it in the maintenance of justice in our communities and among the nations, to the glory of your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spriit, on God, now and forever. Amen.
