Invitation to a Reading of ‘Pray Their Names’.
You are invited to join us Friday August 7th at 7 p.m. at First Congregational Church of Sonoma UCC – 252 West Spain St Sonoma CA to be present, to help read names, to help lay flowers at each site, to walk amongst the hearts. If you want to, please bring flowers.
“There have been 8000+ deaths of Black and brown people at the hands of police since Emmett Till’s murder… the names in this art installation are by NO MEANS comprehensive. We pray that the list has an end point now, but know that the country’s consciousness is (pray God) coming into sharper focus right now in its understanding of the epidemic of racism and how it is infused in every aspect of our society. We give thanks that reforms to policing are being envisioned. May the work of raising consciousness help to save Black lives and all bodies who are more vulnerable to police violence. Thank you for taking this journey here. ~ Rev. Katie Morrison”
