She went there for help, began volunteering, and now belongs to the PPC.

KC KS activists form Mennonite Catholic Worker House of Resilience

The house’s mission: We grow a healthy home by sharing labor and power, knowing our histories, partnering with Creation, and practicing hospitality, response-ability, and place-based peacemaking. Priority will go to local women activists working for systemic social justice in Wyandotte County and providing reparations to women of color in the form of rest and rent relief.

Coffee Reflection

Ron Faust asks: what do you do about those    Who differ in values    Who defend the second amendment    Who disparage the immigrants    Who look down on the poor    Who deny systemic racism What do you say?    Can we compromise? Can we get along? Do we just remain silent?
