LMM Responds to Racial Injustice

Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry (LMM) is struck by the senselessness of the death of George Floyd and devastated to see once again such careless disregard for human life. His death is a painful reminder of the injustice of racism and inequality that permeate American society. 

At LMM, every aspect of our work reflects a commitment to Micah 6:8, "to seek justice, love mercy and walk humbly" in our service to this community. We MUST seek justice for George Floyd's death, and fight for change in our justice system to prevent others from experiencing a similar fate. Click here to read the full statement.
Honoring Pride Month

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month, which promotes the self-affirmation, dignity, equality and increased visibility of this important community. We value our staff and clients who identify, and support them this month and every month. We must come together to support our LGBTQ+ friends, and especially our LGBTQ+ friends of color. 

Attending in-person or virtual Pride Month rallies, supporting LGBTQ+ owned businesses, and donating to LGBTQ+ causes are great ways to celebrate this month. Check out this USA Today article for easy ways you can celebrate Pride Month without even leaving your home.
