The Cabinet has offered the following statement today, August 12, 2014.
The Cabinet of Interfaith Partnership of Greater St. Louis offers our compassion, prayers and support for the family of Michael Brown and the city of Ferguson, Missouri.
We must examine the tragic events taking place in the St. Louis area, seek to understand “Why?” and work toward dismantling systemic racism. Until the causes are addressed and rectified, there will be no change.
As we ask the hard questions and work for lasting solutions, the Cabinet calls for all people to pray for calm and peace and to be part of healing.
Archbishop Robert J. Carlson, Archdiocese of St. Louis, Cabinet Chair
Rev. C. Jessel Strong, The African Methodist Episcopal Church, Cabinet Vice Chair
