This is an incredible opportunity to learn about the most marginalized communities of Spokane, walk with the poor and vulnerable, and practice servant leadership within complex social justice issues. As a participant, you will enjoy the insight and reflection of your peers, learn from moments of discomfort, and be challenged to embrace the differences that so often divide us.
This year, the Spokane Plunge is designed to engage systems of economic injustice, particularly that of poverty and homelessness. Our goal is to engage these systems at the micro and macro level; understanding not only the social systems in place, but also the people affected by them. In our three days, participants will work with their hands, walk the streets of Spokane, listen to speakers, read and reflect, share, ask questions, and explore what it means to ‘bridge difference through servant leadership.’
