Striving for Justice & Equality:
Protests to end racism and police brutality have been taking place around the nation and now, the world, triggered by the murder of George Floyd. The #blacklivesmatter movement has seen a resurgence with a new awareness and understanding. Like the rest of the nation, ongoing protests are taking place throughout the islands, with Episcopalians joining the fight for justice and equality!
