But in an age of hashtag and armchair activism, merely raising awareness about injustice is not enough.Michelle Warren knows what is needed.

When we build relationships where we live, we discover the complexities of standing with the vulnerable and the commitment needed for long-term change.Proximity changes our perspective, compels our response, and keeps us committed to the journey of pursuing justice for all. Move beyond awareness and experience the power of proximity.
