Policing across the country, and within the state of NJ, is in crisis. Years of mistrust and high profile police abuse cases–often captured on smartphones and social media–has landed many Americans in alternate universes of “Black” vs. “Blue” Lives Matter. Relying on the new report, The Force, about policing across NJ communities, Rev. Gregson calls on UU’s and allies to speak up locally so that everyone–minority citizens and the police themselves–are safer, less prone to violence and working together for a common good that, in many ways, has never existed before.
After the service the Social Justice Committee will host a Potluck with a Purpose in Dodd Hall. Rev. Rob will speak further about UU Faith Action NJ and we will have an opportunity for discussion and questions. Please sign up for the potluck at https://mealtrain.com/gl7z4m.
