The goal for the Social Justice page of the Emanuel Nine Foundation is to reflect on Mother Emanuel’s mission to end racism and hate. This page will highlight key news events on social justice or injustice. We will encourage voting, encourage nonviolent protest and will inspire readers to take action as well as provide hope that change will truly happen.
