Connections: Community groups unite against racism

Feb 14, 2018

A number of local groups are joining together to develop what they call a “united community response to Donald Trump’s hatred and racism.” The event will be led by Minister Franklin Florence Sr.

We're joined by the event’s organizers to discuss their goals, and we also welcome comments from supporters of Donald Trump. Our guests:

  • Minister Clifford Florence, president of the Faith Community Alliance
  • Larry Knox, political and community engagement coordinator for 1199 SEIU
  • Howard Eagle, representative of the Take It Down Planning Committee and the Movement for Anti-Racist Ministry and Action
  • Tim Schiefen, small business owner
