Community Rally and Prayer Service
Thursday, July 25th 2013
True Vine Missionary Baptist Church
Justice does not begin or end with one verdict.
We share in the outrage growing from every corner of our nation that we have abandoned our young people to the clutches of violence fueled by racism, greed, fear and our despair.
We affirm that our faiths impel us to speak out that all humans of all races are made in God’s image, and all have the right to live in peace and safety.
And we will work tirelessly and in coalition with one another across racial and ethnic lines, class and place lines, and age and gender lines to vigorously confront the lack of meaningful and quality opportunities for advancement in our KC Metropolitan Area and our nation.
Something big is moving in Kansas City. The next two weeks will see CCO leaders and other members of our community asking bold new questions to demand answers to the lack of opportunity for our children and families. We believe it is important to start with a prayer.
Come join us THIS Thursday, July 25th at 6:30pm at True Vine Baptist Church to rally and pray for racial and economic justice, equitable employment and educational opportunities for all.
