Cabinet Releases Statement about Grand Jury Announcement

Our St. Louis community continues to face deep and painful challenges. The Grand Jury has presented its decision.

We, the members of the Cabinet of Interfaith Partnership, reaffirm our commitment to work toward equality for all our citizens. As we seek to tear down the racial disparities and prejudices that divide us, we remember a fundamental principle of all of our faith traditions—that we are called to treat others as we wish to be treated.

As we seek meaningful change and healing, we pray for understanding of the pain of others. Let us hear one another. Let us commit to creating real solutions that bring an end to unequal treatment and unequal opportunity. Let us all help build a more just and peaceful community.

Interfaith Partnership includes 24 different faith traditions in the St. Louis area. Our motto: “As communities of faith, we agree to differ, promise to love, and unite to serve.”
