Prophetic Voices of the People: An African American Faith Rally
April 4, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am| Free
On the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination, African American faith leaders will gather to share stories and challenge public leaders to work together through bold leadership and courageous action to eliminate inequities, create new opportunities and repair the harm that has been done in the past.
“Our elected leaders have a tremendous responsibility and opportunity to work towards building a state that honors the sacredness andaffirms the dignity of every Minnesotan. As African American people of faith, we will uphold our proud historic and prophetic tradition of answering the call to right injustice.” – Said Rev. Paul Slack, Pastor at New Creation Church in Minneapolis and President of ISAIAH.
