WHAT IS THE JUSTICE LEAGUE?
The prophet Jeremiah said "Work for the good of the city to which I have carried you...for when it prospers, you will also prosper." We think he might've had something. We're thinking about San Francisco and how we can work on taking care of the people who make it home.
See, we think that we're here in the world to help bridge the gap between the world as it is and the world as it ought to be. So we're weaving the pursuit of justice, equality and dignity for all people into the fabric of what we do.
You in? There's work to do here and we need your help.
