“Justice is what love looks like in public.” -Dr. Cornel West
I have always wanted to make a difference. But, what inspires me to give now? Love and justice for my neighbors.
Over 4 years ago, I left my comfort zone and everything that was familiar to join a wonderful community in Atlanta, GA. Little did I know, the Andrew P. Stewart Center would have such a lasting impact on me. I did not know that this community of people would quickly become my neighbors and would continuously inspire me years later.
I give because our students may have limited access to educational resources, but still deserve the same support and attention as those with an abundance of resources.
I give because our children deserve an educational system that supports them as individuals, writers, readers, engineers, instead of judging them by their state test scores and standards.
I give because our kids are constantly teaching me and reminding me what it means to love one another.
I give because our families deserve to have access to wellness resources and quality housing.
I give because “justice is what love looks like in public.”
The Andrew P. Stewart Center strives to promote strong communities through educational initiatives, spiritual enrichment opportunities, and wellness resources. The Stewart Center changed my life and will always be a part of who I am. It has been amazing for me to learn, love, grow, and serve alongside my neighbors of southwest Atlanta.
So, what inspires me to give? Love and justice for my neighbors.
