We are deeply disturbed and saddened by the recent events revealing the systemic problems of racism and policing that continue to plague minorities and people of color. The protests in cities across our nation, including our own, serve to remind us how crucial the work of justice ministry continues to be in the midst of our current crisis. We stand with those who are victims of social injustice everywhere and are committed to the work that brings systemic change to our communities for a more just and equitable society for all.
Thank you to all our members who have fought with us for systemic changes in our community like:
And of course, our most recent work on increasing affordable housing, mental health services, and ensuring Tampa Police are trained in Crisis Intervention Training.
Let’s continue to work side-by-side to improve our community — because in Hillsborough County, we have HOPE for Justice.
