We are people of every color united in prayer against racial injustice.
5 WAYS TO BRING PEACEFUL CHANGE
cry for justice
The Bible says in Psalm 25:8-9 “Good and upright is the Lord; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way. The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way.” -God is a God of Justice. He will not allow injustice and the oppression of His people to continue. We must always pray for justice. Know Justice, know peace!
don't be color blind
None of us chose our skin color. Whites did not choose to be white. Blacks did not choose to be black. We were born into our skin. God made us this way on purpose. He didn’t make us these colors for us to ignore it. He made us with different colors so that we can grow and appreciate one another. Say, “God made colors, and I like what I see.”
listen and affirm
We all have different experiences. Some Whites may have different experiences than Blacks. Rather than point fingers at each other, we should listen and affirm each others experiences, and recognize the differences, then build a solution.
Teach the truth
No one who loves God approves of the actions of those who harmed people in the past or present. None of us can change or rewrite the past, but if we fight the uncomfortable fight to work together, we can write a new future.
Write our President and elected officials to pass a Federal Right to Surrender Law. In short, if hands are up, and palms are out, then law enforcement cannot shoot nor physically assault an individual. Please understand this is only a small step in the right direction. It will take time for our legislators to fine tune this before it becomes law. We believe this is a good start. If you would like a copy of our sample letter, just copy and paste the following:
In light of the recent police involved shootings occurring in almost every community in our nation, I believe it is time that we have a new federal law put in place to prevent the future killing of defenseless unarmed citizens. I am asking for there to be a “Federal Right To Surrender Law.” If a person’s hands are up, and palms are out, then a law enforcement officer cannot shoot nor physically assault or batter a person surrendering. The American people need federal protection. We demand federal protection from rogue law enforcement officers. I believe this is a step in the right direction.
