(BOOKS TO ELEVATE AWARENESS FOR COMMUNITIES OF NEED)

Have you ever wondered why certain injustices persist in our society no matter how many movements are born, cases are won, and laws are passed? Why does inequality remain so pervasive if race and sex-based discrimination are against the law? How did this country’s homelessness problem spiral so far out of control? Why is it possible for people to work two or three or even four jobs in this country and remain too poor to meet even their most basic needs? What can be done about this? Why are there innocent people on death row and how did our prisons become the way they are? Are you craving an opportunity to explore these questions?
