March Against Police Brutality

Faith Forward Dallas -- the interfaith group honored by the North Texas Conference this year – will co-sponsor a march on Saturday, June 17, in response to the police shooting death of 15-year-old Mesquite athlete Jordan Edwards. Here is the group's announcement:

Join the March to End Police Brutality Saturday, June 17th
Assemble 10 AM • St. Paul UMC Church • 1816 Routh • Downtown near Ross.
March to Pike Park • Rally

March with your friends and:

Mothers Against Police Brutality
Family of Jordan Edwards
Faith Forward Dallas
Friendship West Baptist Church
Dallas NAACP
Texas Organizing Project
North Texas Dream Team
TransLation
Texas Equal Access Fund
Faith in Texas
I Will Lead

This is the March to win justice for Jordan Edwards and other people killed by police in the Dallas/Fort-Worth area – and across America. This is the March to honor their memories, to support their families, and to lift every voice to end the national disgrace of unaccountable police violence against the public, particularly African American and Latino youth. This is the March to honor the memory of Santos Rodriguez, a 12-year-old child killed by Dallas police in 1973, in Pike Park near where Santos lived. This is the March to resist SB4 in Texas and to protect immigrant rights. This is the March to lift up the rights of women, refugees, and the LGBTQ community. This is your march! Join us!
