The trial of Dylan Roof begins this week. (Roof is accused of murdering nine Black members of the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC.) The members of that congregation will be dealing with a lot of emotions during this trial as they hear the testimony and work to support the families and loved ones of the fallen. Please consider taking a moment to send a note of support and love to the church to let them know that you’re thinking about them:

Mother Emanuel AME Church
