“In times of uncertainty, and in periods of adversity, we hold onto hope. Hope is an expression of faith that lights our path, bolsters our strength, and inspires positive action. Compassion calls us to put our faith into action in service to others and to treat every being with equity, dignity, and justice. I stay involved with CIR because there is power in collective action.”
