Will you choose fear and hate, or grief and love?

This week, horrifying videos have once again offered witness to the racial injustice present in our criminal justice system. A 37-year-old father of 5, Alton Sterling was shot by police officers while selling music in Baton Rouge, and 32-year-old Philando Castile was shot by police officers in his car in St. Paul with his young daughter in the back seat.

The following day, snipers acted in retaliation at a peaceful protest against police violence in Dallas, killing 5 officers and injuring more.

In this difficult time, we turn to the people who can lead us in prophetic grief – turning our collective mourning into a united front for peaceful action. Here’s what they’re saying.
