The Community Coalition for Social Justice (CCSJ) brings together people
from the Morgantown and nearby areas, including religious organizations,
faculty and staff of area schools and the University, labor unions, and
community advocacy organizations to promote social justice in our community.
See our pages devoted to CCSJ and other Social Action activities in our
area (including an upcoming Religious Diversity event in September), and
other related Local Events (buttons at left).
...Yet, the fierce
urgency of now calls us from despair, urges us claim
no more than our share. Lucent with renewal, we will
not ignore the damage deepening in our land. Dry
self-seeking needs love to moisten us to malleable
shape. Hands together, pushing on the universe’s
moral arm, we can help it bend toward justice.
--Susan Shaw Sailer

writings and speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr.
