After Ferguson--and Beyond

Posted by: Gordon on 10/6/2014
Join us at 2 p.m. central Tuesday, Oct. 7 for a discussion on what happens next in Ferguson, and how organizations across the country are making this a teachable moment. Panelists will include:

  • Rev. John Welch, Gamaliel board chair, will talk about the work of Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network, which recently posted a blog drawing comparisons between what's happening in Pittsburgh and the tragic events in the St. Louis region.
  • Rev. Traci D. Blackmon, Christ the King United Church of Christ, Florissant, will reflect on the crisis from the perspective of someone who has been at Ground Zero. 
They will provide an update on the upcoming mobilization in Ferguson this weekend and outline steps to help across the country including voter work in your community/congregation and a special Hands Up Litany that can be used in worship Sunday, Oct. 12.
