Livingston For Love Rally

Date: 
Sun, Aug 27, 2017 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

City:

We, in Livingston County, believe in love. We believe in the power of love to create strong beautiful communities, deepen human connection across differences, and conquer the forces of fear and hatred. This week has seen fear and hatred exemplified in the actions of those who marched with symbols and words that proclaimed that one race was superior to another, that some human lives did not have as much worth as others. We’ve seen this before in Livingston County. The last racially motivated cross burning took place less than 30 years ago, and public displays of intolerance continue to the present. It is time for us to stand up boldly and unequivocally and denounce white supremacy, denounce violence, denounce oppression, denounce hatred, and most importantly, proclaim love. The Community Unitarian Universalists in Brighton, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, and Indivisible would like to invite everyone to “Livingston For Love” rally, in which we will proclaim that every human being has worth and is deserving of love.

The event will take place Sunday, August 27th, at the Brighton Mill Pond from 1 to 2:30. Updated information will be posted to this Facebook event. If you have questions, would like to assist with the rally, or would like to become a partner, please contact Pastor Julie Brock at 313-247-7054 or minister@cuub.org. It is imperative that we stand up as a community and proclaim with one strong voice that Livingston can mean Love.
