We Will Not Go Back! March and Rally to Protest Murder of Mr. Eric Garner
August 20, 2014
Dear Faith Leaders:
I am the Rev. Nelson B. Rivers, III, Vice President of Religious Affairs and External Relations for the National Action Network (NAN), and we need your help!! The Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network are calling on all churches and people of faith to join us on Saturday, August 23 @ 12pm Noon for the WE WILL NOT GO BACK! March and Rally on Staten Island, New York to protest the murder of Mr. Eric Garner by the police on July 17, 2014.
In Isaiah 58:1, God commands His prophet Isaiah to speak out against injustice! There is a great need today for people of faith and the church, in particular, to speak out against police violence. Now is time for the church speak loud just like Isaiah!
We are marching to bring justice to the family and community of Mr. Garner. We will start the March at Victory Blvd. and Bay St., Staten Island, at the place where Mr. Garner was killed by an illegal chokehold by a police officer.
Please copy and distribute the attached flyer and also use it to make announcements this Sunday, August 17th.
If you need any additional information please call the House of Justice at (877) NAN-HOJI (877-626-4651) or you may reply to this email.
PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE MARCH FOR JUSTICE!
In His service,
Rev. Nelson B. Rivers, III
