Online ~ at Home ~ on the Streets
Many of us are unsure how to most faithfully protest the egregious atrocities of violence against our black siblings and how to stand up and take action for justice in this tumultuous time. As each of us discerns what we are called to do:
- Let us turn to the best in our own faith tradition that inspires us to be most loving and courageous.
- Let us learn from others – those of other faith traditions and leaders from the past.
- Let us remember, and commit, that we are in this struggle for the long haul.
MVPJ’s website is pulling together resources for how to respond ~ online ~ at home ~ on the streets.
For starters (See many more ideas on our website. Add your own ideas here.):
- Online – Join our Peaceful Presence focused on Racial Justice and hosted by the MVPA Musalla Islamic Center on Thursday, June 11, 7pm
- At home: Post a sign of solidarity in your yard, window or car
- On the Streets: There are daily events on the peninsula, including one this Saturday, June 6, 12 Noon at Palo Alto King Plaza.
One thing we know, MVPJ’s motto has never been more important:
A time comes when silence is betrayal, and that time has come for us.
