Activists Group

We maintain a #LetLoveContinue activist group that stays informed and seeks to update members on ways to peacefully protest and partner with the voices of those who are oppressed and on the margin. 

Join this group by texting the keyword Advocate to 214-441-6647.


We take care of our community. Our neighborhood is filled with people experiencing hard times. We seek to provide food, shelter, clothing and meals to those in need and do so while maintaining their dignity.
