A Statement from Peoples Congregational UCC


“As pastoral leaders of Peoples Congregational United Church of Christ in the District of Columbia, we are deeply disappointed that justice was denied by the questionable verdict of the Grand Jury in Ferguson, Missouri, regarding the tragic killing of Michael Brown, Jr. Our congregation stands in solidarity with the National Setting of the United Church of Christ and other communities of faith in the call to demand justice and renew the commitment to end racial profiling, especially of young African American males, and police brutality in communities of color across our country. We will continue to keep Michael Brown’s parents and family and the Ferguson, Missouri, community in our prayers.”
