Participate in a group read!

In celebration of ACT II's 25 years of justice work in Baldwin County, Ecumenical Ministries is hosting a series of events to celebrate is accomplishments and create awareness and support for the future. Through a group read of "Just Mercy," by Bryan Stevenson, we hope to examine justice work presented by Bryan Stevenson and discuss justice work being done here and now in Baldwin County. 

Our goal is to bring the community together while creating awareness of the need for equal justice and presenting actions that can be taken to bring about real change.
