Churches and Faith Groups Join Protests, Dialogues on Race

clergy-protests-NEWS-smProtests continue across the nation in the wake of grand jury decisions in Missouri and New York not to indict white police officers in the deaths of unarmed African Americans. Religious groups have played a key role in many of the protests. This weekend (December 13-14), many churches are holding special services with the theme “Black Lives Matter.” Many faith groups have been calling for a new national dialogue about race.

Watch our conversation on race and religion with Lisa Sharon Harper, senior director of mobilizing for the Christian social action group Sojourners.
