This Sunday, IFFP will honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy by celebrating Black Lives Matter. We are honored to host Rev. Anne Dunlap, who will offer a reflection. She engages in faith outreach for the national organization, Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), a group encouraging white people to join in advocating for racial justice. We will mix traditional civil rights songs with some new ones. Rev. Dunlap will share SURJ’s vision for a world in which everyone is safe and where no one need fear police violence, as well as the scriptural basis for that work.

 

During Adult Group, we will hear more from Rev. Dunlap; she will discuss SURJ’s Community Safety for All toolkit which encourages us to deepen our understanding, to reflect on our faith tradition’s teachings, to evaluate how we interact with and rely on police, and to take action. Rev. Dunlap will challenge us to consider what the campaign for abolition means today.  {Note:  the toolkit is for IFFP use. If you want to alert others, please refer them directly to SURJ’s Community Safety Website so they can sign up to receive their own free copy and where they can learn more about the campaign.}

 

Rev. Anne Dunlap is the Faith Coordinator for Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ). Her work was nurtured by faith-rooted organizing in the Central America solidarity movement in the 1980s. She is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and also the founder of FierceRev Remedies, offering herbal consults, workshops, mentorship as well as consulting, teaching, and preaching, towards the goal of racial justice and collective liberation that’s rooted in practice with the land. Originally from Arkansas, she currently lives in Buffalo, NY with her beloved.  https://www.showingupforracialjustice.org/surj-staff.htm
