Shoulder to Shoulder Joins Open Call For Unity Following Belgium and Turkey Tragedies

On Stories

Shoulder to Shoulder joined nearly 70 other groups, including a number of our denominational members, in calling for unity over bigotry & hate:

“Hate is hate. It does not cease to be hate, nor does it become any less harmful, in moments of tragedy. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that Americans receive fair and fact-based information from both our leaders and the media, and most importantly, that we stand united.

There’s too much at stake for our leaders and the media to use religion to drive a wedge between us. Now is the time for people of all faiths, here in the U.S. and throughout the world, to come together in the spirit of freedom and justice, and refuse to allow tragic attacks of violence to divide us along faith lines.”
