Peace and Justice for All: Now and Forever
The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans strongly endorse the call for every black person in the nation to come to DC to express their deep concerns about the continuous targeting of black people in the name of irrefutable evil and persisting racism. We call on all black men to stand up with Christ for the sake of their families, communities, and this nation.
We call on all of us to be peaceful in our words and deeds as we petition our government concerning the mistreatment and the brutal imposition of young, unarmed African American males and those of us who are innocent. NBCI strongly endorses Minister Farrakhan call for unity as it demonstrates the need to be focused in our approach to achieving peace and justice for all.
The National Black Church Initiative will send out notices to all 15 major denominations asking each of them to have their membership reflected in the one million men convening in Washington, DC. In 2015, it becomes more and more imperative that we must eliminate institutional racism wherever it exists now and forever. Black lives do matter and we declare and proclaim justice and peace.
Rev. Anthony Evans, President of the National Black Church Initiative, says “we enthusiastically endorse this march noting the 20th Anniversary of the million man march. Today we are marching again because, with an African American president, white supremacy and institutional racism continue to infect the hearts and actions of some as demonstrated by the continuous brutal assaults and unnecessary murders often videotaped and shown for the world to see. The black church will continuously stand for non-violence direct action. Our goal is simple, we are committed to bringing about the Kingdom of God by creating the beloved community on earth but we will not allow white supremacy to arbitrarily assassinate the lives and spirit of black people at will.”
