On Thursday April 4, 10:00 – 11:00 AM, 200 African-American clergy and members of their congregations will hold a faith rally at the Minnesota State Capitol Rotunda. Together, they will call on legislators to erase existing equity gaps in education, transit, healthcare and housing. They seek to partner with state leaders to achieve equitable budget solutions that benefit the children and families of their community.
“Our elected leaders have a tremendous responsibility to and opportunity to work towards building a state that honors the sacredness and affirms the dignity of every Minnesotan. On the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination, the African American faith leaders will uphold our historic and prophetic tradition of being called to right injustice.” – Said Rev. Paul Slack, Pastor at New Creation Church in Minneapolis and President of ISAIAH.
