“While recognizing that racism victimizes many different racial-ethnic groups, we acknowledge its unique impact on the African American community. Given the particular forms that anti-Black racism has taken in the United States of America both historically (including slavery and Jim Crow) and today (including mass incarceration, disproportionate policing, economic inequality, and continuing acts of racially oriented violence and hate), we state clearly: GOD LOVES BLACKNESS. Too many have denied this basic truth for too long. Our choice to align ourselves with love and not hate requires both a rejection of racism and a positive proclamation that God delights in Black lives.”

Virtual Fair-Trade Gift Show
Shop Fair-Trade & Change Lives!
Because we can’t hold our 3rd annual Fair-Trade Gift Show in person this December, due to the Covid pandemic, we are hosting an online event instead.
Our Fair-Trade Gift Show page will be available Tuesday, Dec 1 to Saturday, Dec 12.
The page features vendors who participated in our previous Fair-Trade Gift Shows, with descriptions of their programs and links to the individual vendor’s sites where items may be purchased directly online. Some vendors are providing special offers if you access their sites from our Fair-Trade Gift Show page. Your purchase of fair trade products helps artisans and farmers build healthier, more sustainable communities worldwide.
