Youth forum addressing
Churches Uniting in Christ (CUIC), led by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s Robina Winbush, will host a young adult forum focusing on racism. “Truth to Power: Eradicating Racism” will take place March 15 at Christian Chapel CME Church in Dallas, and will be live-streamed at www.cctof.org. Sparked by the grand jury decisions to not indict the police officers who killed Michael Brown (Ferguson, Missouri) and Eric Garner (New York City), the forum is designed for young adults to discuss their issues and concerns around racism and to move toward strategic sustainable action. Winbush, the PC(USA)’s director of ecumenical relations; serves as CUIC’s president and Sera Chung, the PC(USA)’s associate for gender and racial justice, serves on CUIC’s Racial and Social Justice Task Force.

[한국어] Just a short distance from where Michael Brown’s bloody body lay in the streets for hours after being gunned down on August 9, the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA (NCC) gathered Tuesday to stand in solidarity with those crying out for justice.
“We are in partnership with pastors and congregations who are preaching, seeking justice, and providing pastoral care in Ferguson’s churches in the midst of the current tensions,” the NCC said from inside Wellspring Church in Ferguson, Mo. “It is our hope that the city and its citizens, churches, law enforcement officials, justice-seekers, and media will all be shepherded by the teaching of Jesus to love God and to ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’”
