What Matters is now on Facebook! You can like the page by clicking on the Facebook widget in the sidebar on this site or you can go here. I’ll still be posting my original writing on this site but head on over to Facebook to also have access to other content I’ll be sharing with our community, like videos and articles by other people related to current events and other important issues like culture, race and ethnicity, poverty, women’s rights, health access, LGBTQ rights, and education. Facebook also provides an easy way for all of us to be able to have real time conversations with each other.
You can also join The Social Justice Book & Movie Club by liking the Facebook page!
