We are not a relief organization. We are not a soup kitchen. We are an advocacy organization that not only cares about protecting your civil rights, we value community programs and organizations that are dedicated to helping those in need.

Here are two events that we sponsored this fall simply because we felt that it’s important to give back:

• Manna on Main Street 5K Race and 1 Mile Run For Fun – a race to help end hunger
• 2012 Day of Dignity – an annual event that brings the community together to give out care packages to those in need

We encourage you to give back to your community by making a generous donation to challenge hate and bigotry.
