Faith Action Network Statement about #Ferguson
The gravity of this week’s events in
Ferguson impels us to send a second e-news to you with thisstatement from Faith Action Network’s Governing
Board: The Faith Action Network stands in solidarity
with all those who have experienced and continue to experience institutional
racism and violence in our nation. We call for a dialogue that results in action
to address the challenges inherent in our institutional structures. May this be
the time and the moment when justice and healing begin, here in Washington and
across our nation. We close with Ella’s Song (lyrics and music by
Bernice Johnson Reagon, sung by Sweet Honey in the Rock):

White mothers’ sons We who believe in freedom cannot rest We who believe
in freedom cannot rest until it comes...
Interests: Digital Inclusion, Languages and language access, walkability, accessibility, disaster preparedness.
When in doubt, laugh about something!
