The movement placed our Church at the center of demonstrations and conversations. In the early days of the movement, we began the work as a multi-racial faith community, first with a statement denouncing the pattern of racial oppression from 1619 to the present that recently resulted in the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and many others and calling for criminal justice and police reform in New York City.
We shared an AntiRacism Action Toolkit with members, neighbors, and friends to engage in an achievable number of collective actions, with the confidence that others in our uniquely diverse LAPC community are taking these same steps too.
We built a Memorial to affirm sacred Black life in the face of racism, white supremacy and police brutality. When this memorial was vandalized, we decided to make permanent flags which we proudly displayed on our masts for all to see.
