Reminder: Justice Sunday

Bishop René Soulé, Chaplain and Executive Director-Elect of NBEOCA, sends us a reminder of the Justice Sunday Initiative, sponsored by Northshore Black Elected Officials Coalition & Associates (NBEOCA). The Coalition asks that on Sunday, January 19, 2014 (Rev Dr MLK, Jr weekend)  ALL churches in St. Helena, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, & Washington Parishes preach a Justice message. The goals of this initiative are as follows:

1. AWARENESS: All churches preach a Justice message on Sunday, Jan 19th

2. ACTION: Create/Support - Parenting Workshops on "Effective Parenting" and Reentry Programs to support successful reintegration into the community to be launched in Feb 2014.

3. ADVOCACY: Meet with Sheriffs, Police Chiefs, DAs, and Clerk of the Court to advocate for more diversion programs for non-violent and first time offenders.
