Our book for this week is Social Justice Handbook: Small Steps for a Better World (Bridgeleader Books). Every day we are confronted by challenging societal problems, from poverty and institutional racism to AIDS and homelessness. It can all seem so overwhelming. But while none of us can do everything, all of us can do something. This handbook will help you discover what you can do.
