Faith Leaders United for Change Honor George Floyd

On Sunday afternoon, June 14, at the Lucas County Common Pleas Courthouse, women from all walks of life gathered to express their concerns about the George Floyd murder. This was organized by the Faith Leaders United for Change: Pastors Marquisa Horton,; Shalonda Thurmond; Evangelist Diane Haynes; First Lady Regina Mack; Kellie Jones and others. Local pastors present were: Perry Harris III, Willie Perryman, Chris Rowell, Randall Parker, Robert Culp, along with city officials Lindsay Webb, County Treasurer; Tina Wozniak, County Commissioner and Yvonne Harper, City Councilwoman.

Several mothers gave their testimonials about the deaths of their sons. Ronell Ferrell shared her heartfelt story of losing her son to two gunshot wounds in the back in 2017.

Many faith leaders spoke about the need for change.

Lisa Dubose, who has experience with human resources, spoke on the issues of equality and justice for Black Americans and on human rights indicating proper training and policies to avoid excessive force and police brutality.

The purpose of the Praytest/Protest against police brutality and injustice was to inform the community that "we hear your call and are ready to respond."
