Social Justice and Equality in Our City and World

June 1, 2020

As InSpero acknowledges the deep racial wounds of our city, our posture is one of kneeling, not standing. We grieve the injustices suffered by people of color through systemic oppression. We desire to listen, learn, lament, and be part of the healing of our city. We kneel in prayer and repentance and stand with those who recognize and work for racial reconciliation and equality.
