Rally? What Rally?

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 PoliIMG_0799ce 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 IMG_0785Imam 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.
