In the midst of the greatest economic and health crisis of our generation, we have the privilege of standing with those whose very livelihood is threatened by the shutdown through our Stimulus Jubilee!

By drawing from our stimulus checks and our own financial reserves, we can collectively share a little taste of Jesus’ Jubilee “good news to the poor” (Luke 4).

As always during Giving Week, we give wherever we are led and as we are able. This spring we are highlighting four highly effective opportunities to redistribute emergency help where it’s needed most.

At Celebration we heard from CWOW members Jane Lee of Centro Legal de la Raza and Jess Qian of Achieve Academy. Both organizations work substantially with undocumented families in East Oakland who are routinely denied both stimulus funds and unemployment insurance.

If you missed Jane and Jess’ stories please check out the video here(tune in at minute 12).  To learn more about Centro Legal’s work during this crisis, click here or read the Berkeleyside article. And here is more inspiring detail about Achieve Academy from their newsletter.

Next week we are excited to hear from our former pastor Rena Crocker of the GreenHouse in Sacramento and member Paige Balcom of Takataka Plastics in Uganda.
