WE RAISE BOOK CLUB
We seek to be continually learning about the issues our communities are facing in order to serve those around us. The We Raise Book Club reflects our commitment to raising up issues and leaders. Regularly, our book club will feature and give away copies of books we find relevant to our focus areas.
PLEASE NOTE: We acknowledge that there are a wide variety of opinions and responses to the issues our communities are facing. We believe that a posture of learning requires an open mind and a willingness to engage with ideas and opinions different from your own. While our team does have criteria for featured books, inclusion of a book in the We Raise Book Club does not imply endorsement of the author or their opinions.
By Michelle Ferrigno Warren
“We can see evidence of injustice all around us, whether in continuing incidents of racial inequality or in the systemic forces that disenfranchise people and perpetuate poverty. It’s important to learn about the world’s inequities and to be a voice for the voiceless any way we can. But in an age of hashtag and armchair activism, merely raising awareness about injustice is not enough.
Michelle Warren knows what is needed. She and her family have chosen to live in communities where they are ‘proximate to the pain of the poor.’ This makes all the difference in facing and overcoming injustice. When we build relationships where we live, we discover the complexities of standing with the vulnerable and the commitment needed for long-term change.
Proximity changes our perspective, compels our response, and keeps us committed to the journey of pursuing justice for all. Move beyond awareness and experience the power of proximity.”
