Important Announcement -- Social Justice Discussion with other faith-based and activist groups
Please join us on Sunday, February 21, at 5:00pm as Kol HaLev hosts a conversation about criminal pretrial justice issues in Baltimore.
We will host the Rev. Dr. Todd Yeary, Senior Pastor of Douglas Memorial Community Church (Madison Avenue in Baltimore), and discuss ways that KHL as a community can learn more, care more, and do more about social justice in our city.
While there are many opportunities for volunteering, for one-shot or routine activities that ameliorate suffering, there is also the need for sustained efforts for significant structural change. We have identified an important yet discrete issue and campaign within the city's pretrial justice system that will undoubtedly provide a lens for us to investigate and learn more about the larger context and causes of racial and class inequities we so often overlook for needed treatment. And we can form partnerships and alliances within the African-American community that will help us accomplish tangible steps toward a more just and caring city.
