“The Faith and Community Conference was an excellent experience surrounded by people of faith and grassroots organizers talking about the issues that matter most to us and impact our communities in North Carolina. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the conference, and I am excited to deepen the relationships and connect with all the people I met during the event and work in collaboration with one another.”
