Around the country, and nowhere more than Detroit, this past weekend, the interfaith community rallied around the hashtag #LoveYourNeighbor.
Michigan United Annual Convention
Michigan United held an annual Convention this weekend in Detroit with clergy leading the way for several of important justice campaigns – restoring the power of the elected Detroit Board of Police Commissioners; addressing predatory lending by PayDay lenders; Fighting for Gender Equity, specifically in female dominated caregiving roles such as child care and elder care. Imam Qazwini and Imam Elturk were there to represent the TAKE ON HATE campaign. I was so happy to see them at the Convention and so pleased at the big turnout at the Convention from great folks from around the State of Michigan. – Sharon Buttry
And Interfaith Community Outreach had a great day at their annual Crop Walk.
