Dear Friends,

I hope that you are enjoying celebrating Holy Week and Passover with your friends and family.

As we take the time to meditate on the meanings of these celebrations, we are reminded of the presence of a compassionate God who delivers His people from oppression and offers a love more powerful than death.

Alabama is the third poorest state in the nation, with 18.9 percent of our neighbors – and 27.4 percent of our kids – living in poverty.

While the statistics can be overwhelming, God’s awesome, powerful love gives us faith that we can achieve a state of social justice: the opportunity for everyone to make the most of their potential, where people are not held back by where they come from, and everyone is supported to succeed.

Thank you for working with us to create a fairer society by tackling the causes and consequences of poverty. Together, we are making amazing things happen.

Wishing you a joyous Passover and a blessed Easter,

Kristina Scott

Executive Director
