The Toward Justice Group, formed in the wake of the Ferguson events, meets monthly to discuss Racial Justice actions in which we can participate and reform issues for which we will advocate. The group partners with other community groups which promote racial justice and reform to our governmental system. Projects have included supporting the ‘Break the School to Prison Pipeline’ with Metropolitan Congregations United and lobbying for police reform and anti-bias training legislation with ACLU.
In addition, the group prepares and presents education events for the congregation such as a continuing book discussion group and White Supremacy Teach-Ins. The group will often gather on Sundays immediately after church for public witness in support of Black Lives Matter and/or Rights of Immigrants on the corner of Kingshighway and Waterman.
Toward Justice meets on the first click here of the month at at the church. Please join us! For more information, contact Lynn Hunt, Religious Educator:
