In Solidarity!

I wish that I had the right words that could provide meaningful respite from the mix of outrage, despair, exhaustion, fear, or weariness that you may be  feeling. And although I do not have the right words, I possess a strong faith, a comparable conviction and a voice that declares that I denounce the violence against Black and Brown communities across our country. LESFU’s founders, former executives and board of directors denounce white supremacy in all its forms. We denounce the violence against people making their voices heard and stand in solidarity with those working to dismantle the structural inequity and injustices of our society.  We reaffirm our commitment to racial equity and social justice, in both our words and our actions! PRESERVE, STRENGTHEN AND EMPOWER!

In Solidarity,

April L. Phillips

Executive Director


“God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable], A very present and well-proved help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains be shaken and slip into the heart of the seas, Though its waters roar and foam, Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains tremble at its roaring”. Psalm 46:1-3 AMP V
