A Statement from the Rector and Rector-Elect about Eric Garner

Trinity Wall Street
 
We are saddened and angered by the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner and the subsequent grand jury decisions not to indict. We add our voice to the call being issued across the country for peaceful protest and social justice. We will continue to teach and preach on this issue and call for constructive dialogue on the systematic issues so terribly illustrated by these deaths. The loss of these lives is tragic, and our heart as a Christian community goes out to their families. 
 
Faithfully,
 
 
The Rev. Dr. James. H. Cooper, Rector, Trinity Wall Street
The Rev. Dr. William Lupfer, Rector-Elect, Trinity Wall Street
