Official Press Statement from Rev. Wendell Anthony

Today we are here to announce the upcoming National Dialogue and Revival for Social Justice to be hosted by Fellowship Chapel Thursday and Friday, here in the City of Detroit. This is a National Dialogue and movement among African American churches to re-emphasize the significant fight for social justice and self-determination rooted in the historic mission of the church. All people are invited to attend this two-day dialogue and symposium.

The partners for this historic event are the National Action Network, Detroit NAACP, Radio One and of course Fellowship Chapel United Church of Christ. The purpose of this Dialogue is to help arm the church with the tools needed to continue the fight for racial justice, elimination of poverty, an end to injustice and to raise the level of healthcare priorities in our community. Further it is to combat the continuous emphasis on prosperity and money as the key to salvation as opposed to the good news of empowering our people and addressing the life quality issues for the neglected and the rejected.

We are pleased to announce both national and local speakers and panelists for this Dialogue. Speakers including the Rev. Al Sharpton, founder of the National Action Network and former presidential candidate, comedian and social activist Dick Gregory, and Rev. Dr. Freddie Haynes III, pastor of the Friendship West Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas will all be coming to the City of Detroit for this community-wide event.

It is our intention to send out a clarion call for action to help in the fight for social justice, to engage churches to join in the fight to defeat Proposal 2 and further to engage in the mission for AIDS prevention in the African American community.

We are pleased that Radio One will be broadcasting both days here at Fellowship Chapel. We plan to have religious and social justice leaders from across the country calling into this National Dialogue as participants as well as to engage churches nation-wide for this historic mission.

The Detroit Branch NAACP encourages everyone to VOTE NO ON 2! The Detroit Branch NAACP is the nation's largest branch. General membership meetings are FREE and open to the public.
