"Selma Sunday: Faith, Justice, And The Power Of Love"

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

On March 8, 1965, faith leaders across the country received an urgent telegram from Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. calling for them to come to Selma, Alabama, in response to the horrific events the previous day on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. In the ensuing weeks, thousands responded. Faith leaders today--from many different religions--have been an integral part of the "Black Lives Matter" movement, working to affirm the inherent worth of every person—especially those deemed less important by society. Join the Denver Freedom Riders, the Interfaith Alliance of CO, the Colorado Council of Churches, Coloradans for Justice, and people of faith from across the Denver area for an afternoon of exploration, action, and connection. Our interactive program centers on the faith-based racial justice movement, past and present. Come ready to hear—and share—action steps to move this important work forward. THIS IS FREE ADMISSION Organized by Angela Sanders and Kenny Wiley of the Denver Freedom Riders, and the Interfaith Alliance’s Amanda Henderson. Hosted by: Denver Freedom Riders, Interfaith Alliance of CO, Coloradans for Justice, History Colorado, and the Colorado Council of Churches
