Sticker Ministry

A great way to spread awareness about something you care about is to put a sticker on your water bottle, computer, notebook or planner. Help spread awareness on social justice issues by picking up a sticker or two at a Social Justice event or reach out to Ali Fields, the Director of Social Justice.

We have stickers to show your support for body positivity, mental health matters, LGBTQ+, anti-racism and more.

Rainbow Stoles

We wear rainbows to call attention to our welcoming stance and to show solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community. This Pride symbol is a visual sign of a commitment to justice in the areas of gender and sexuality.
