ExodusFoundation.org is asking all Presbyterians to help stop the flow of African-Americans to prison by becoming a mentor for 1 year. The time it takes to watch two footballs games, approximately 7 hours a month, is all that is needed to help a man or woman recharge their lives. Retirees are welcomed! Through the Red Sea Crossings Mentoring and Scholarship Program you can utilize your gifts to help someone overcome legal discrimination aptly called “The New Jim Crow” because it is legal to discriminate against people with records in housing, education, employment and voting. Call 704-947-9090 ext. 102 to speak with the Mentoring Program Coordinator Latonya Vaughner. Call us now please even if you need to wait for the next training. We have a waiting list of people iwho desperately want personal coaches. I’m not afraid of them and you don’t have to be either! These are God’s creatures.
“When all the prisoners of the land are crushed under foot, when human rights are perverted in the presence of the
Most High, does the Lord not see it?” Lamentations 3:34.
