Building Beloved Community

Celebrating Women’s History Month: 

As Women’s History Month follows Black History Month, you are invited to reflect on the message in Amanda Gorman’s Inauguration poem.

The Hill We Climb  (excerpt)

….We will rebuild, reconcile, and recover

And every known nook of our nation and

every corner called our country,

our people diverse and beautiful will emerge,

battered and beautiful

When day comes we step out of the shade,

Aflame and unafraid

The new dawn blooms as we free it

For there is always light,

If only we’re brave enough to see it

If only we’re brave enough to be it.
