Monday Mourning at Peace Park in Cape Girardeau

As an effort to encourage local clergy members to confront racism and actively seek social justice within local communities, the social justice ministry at St. James A.M.E. Church called faith leaders to a "Monday Mourning" event June 8, 2020, at Peace Park in Cape Girardeau. The interfaith event allowed local religious leaders to express their repentance for previous inactions against social injustice and served to compel local clergy to actively confront social injustices.
