November 28, 2014 (San Diego’s East Coujnty)--Many are wondering how to best respond to the cries for justice coming from communities across the country in the wake of the situation in Ferguson.
The San Diego Partnership of Churches is asking people in San Diego County to “prayerfully consider making this Black Friday a day of prayer and of participation in the nationwide boycott encouraging shoppers to not to spend one dime on Black Friday,” says Mary Domb Mikkelson with United Church of Christ in La Mesa. “This is a form of nonviolent protest in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.”
Organizers plan a candlelight vigil at 5 p.m. on Friday, November 29 at 5:00 p.m. at Mission Hills United Church of Christ, 4070 Jackdaw Street, San Diego, CA 92108, (http://www.missionhillsucc.org/).
“Bring candle, as we will be taking our prayers to the streets,” Mikkelson states
