Impediments to a Flourishing Church and Community Part 4: Faith Community and Law Enforcement (Hampton Roads)

Join us for a complimentary lunch as we have a dialogue about impediments to a flourishing church and community.
“Pope Francis expounds on the cost of excluding African Americans and others from the economy, writing, “Until exclusion and inequality in society (and in the economy) and between peoples is reversed, it will be impossible to eliminate violence…When a society – Whether local, national or global – is willing to leave a part of itself on the fringes, no political programs or resources spent on law enforcement or surveillance systems can indefinitely guarantee tranquility.” (Luke Bobo, Race, Economics and Apologetics: Is there A Connection?)
We are partnering with the monthly Pastors Dialogue on Racism, Poverty and Violence for this event. Also, as part of their Community Week, the Newport News Police Department Academy Recruits and the Academy Training Staff will be joining us.
