Conquering Societal Ills

How can your small group partner with community organizations?

Think of your community. What societal ills exist that put the weak in vulnerable positions? (If you’re not sure, do some research as a group to find out.) Brainstorm the cause of these societal ills and what might be done to change them. Then research groups and organizations that are already working against these issues and learn what they’re doing. Find ways you can support these groups and work alongside them. Consider: In what ways can your group better love those around you by working to heal this particular societal ill?
