On Sunday June 7th The Hampton Roads City Collective (HRCC) hosted a peaceful Prayer March in downtown Norfolk to celebrate the diverse expression of God’s image in humanity that affirms the dignity, value and worth of every person. They called on faith communities in Hampton Roads to stand united, seek justice, and love mercy; and thousands answered the call!
The Desired Outcomes were:
Turning our hearts away from racism, inequality, and silence to focus on God as the source of reconciliation
Encouraging all to develop deeper relationships and love for each other
Seeking cultural change through policies and practices that continue to build a more just community
It was a wonderful experience and hopefully it won't be the last time an event like that happens. Me and my family joined the march, interacted with people we hand't met before and even exchange numbers with a family that loved our spirit and wanted to get to know us more. We couldn't have been happier with the outcome. Which events have you attended in support of unity, against police brutality and in favor of change? Let us know in the comments.
As always... Keep it Truthful!
