Allies Working for Social Justice & Environmental Progress

The Allies work to discuss concerns and develop strategies surrounding nine key issues, including: 

            • Immigration Policy
            • Racial Justice
            • Women's Issues
            • LGBTQ Equity
            • Religious Tolerance
            • Environmental Protection
            • Hate Crimes
            • School Bullying
            • Protecting Health Care

We recognize that change and progress are necessary in each of these topic areas, and that in many cases the issues are extremely complex. But this is why we invite everyone in the Lakeshore community to join us, as we seek to make an impact in our local communities.
