Social Justice

While America is a nation of great abundance, many neighborhoods and families struggle with issues of poverty, poor health, failing schools, and lack of economic opportunities. Sagamore’s Center on Faith in Communities, led by Senior Fellow Amy Sherman, Ph.D., seeks to address such issues by inspiring, educating and equipping faith-based and community organizations in their efforts to transform communities.
