Alyssa Parker Article on Education Inequity Featured in Messenger!

Our very own Alyssa Parker contributed an article called “Race, education, and the church” to the most recent edition of the Church of the Brethren’s magazine Messenger. The piece traces Harrisburg First’s journey of gaining a deeper understanding of educational inequity in Pennsylvania as well as taking action to combat it. Check it out here!
