From the Alliance's Facebook event:
After this inauguration, the Kent Interfaith Alliance for Reconciliation and Justice invite everyone to come together to remind our politicians to UNITE us, instead of trying to divide us. That in our community there is JUSTICE FOR ALL, and that we stand up for human dignity for ALL our neighbors.
On Saturday January 21, 2017 at 2pm, the day following the Presidential inauguration, The Kent InterFaith Alliance (KIFA) and anyone in the community wishing to support this effort will be assembling at the Portage County Court House in Kent. ( 303 E Main St, Kent, OH 44240)
We will come from all over town from worship centers, meeting halls, campus and businesses. The meeting at the Kent courthouse steps will:
1. Show united support for all of our elected officials calling on them to unify our country in waging, ”liberty and justice for all”.
2. To call on them and ourselves to respect all people while representing all irrespective of race, gender, religion, income, or orientations.
3. To take action on policies to bring about this reconciliation and justice, and reject policies which will divide us and/or promote some citizens over others.
Weather depending, people will walk by faith or groups from their houses of worship to the steps in symbolic action. We encourage them to carry signs identifying themselves, and their justice issues. Those too distant may meet first at another’s closer worship center. Those who may be fearful, or just want a bigger group can ask others over to join them. Those who can’t walk can just meet at the Kent Courthouse steps at 2PM for the flash mob assembly.
Elected officials are invited to appear and share their work for reconciliation and justice. We will express support of our elected officials doing this mixed back and forth with individuals calling to be represented in all official work.
We will then walk together to the nearby Gateway Center . Short action presentations will be exchanged with action ideas to take home. Music shared will uplift our spirits. The event can lead us to become a more united engaged community enacting America’s founding ideals for all.
