NEVER AGAIN: A Pilgrimage for Black Lives

June 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Faith in Texas envisions a world in which economic, racial, and social equity enable everyone to live in complete liberation to pursue their divine purpose and participate fully in the systems and processes that govern their lives. As long as the Black community is under attack, our vision cannot be realized.

Our community and nation are in the midst of an uprising for Black lives. This struggle will not be finished until all Black people can live and be treated with the dignity they deserve as sacred creations. We invite you to join us on an intentional march to the sites of the lynching of Allen Brooks in 1910 and the murder of Diamond Ross in 2018. On this sacred ground, we will honor those we have lost to racist violence and make a declaration and commitment to our city and ourselves: Never Again.

This struggle requires sacrifice, so we will prepare ourselves, through prayer and sacred practices from our many faith traditions, for the continued action necessary to overcome. Together we can tap into our prophetic imaginations to unleash a new system of justice that ensures the hungry are fed, the vulnerable are cared for, and the sick are healed.
