Atlanta Interfaith Press Release

Atlanta Faith-based and Community Organizations Speak Out against the Violent, Extremist Rhetoric
in this Year’s Presidential Campaign

[Atlanta, GA]  We must speak out before it is too late.The vulgar and incendiary rhetoric of presidential candidate Donald Trump is repugnant to our group of community and faith leaders committed to and engaged in community building across faith, race and political divides.

  As leaders, we deplore and stand united against hate-filled, fear-mongering and potentially violence-inciting words and actions. Calls for the mass deportation of undocumented migrants, such statements as “I think Islam hates us,” and posting quotes by Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini are blatant provocative behaviors and dangerous at many levels—not the least of which is to encourage destructive and hateful actions that unfortunately are a part of this year’s highly-charged political atmosphere.

Those seeking the highest office in the United States must build bridges, not walls.
They must denounce those who harm others for no reason other than political disagreement.

We call upon Mr. Trump and all political candidates to publicly reject divisive statements, refrain from any further such pronouncements and denounce those who commit acts of violence in their name.

We call on Mr. Trump and all who seek the presidency and their campaign staffs to speak with civility and honor the dignity of all.     We call on all those aspiring to become the President of the United States to embrace the ethic of the “Golden Rule” (that one should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself), that is deeply rooted in our country’s civic and religious values.

     We invite all candidates to meet with us, faith and community leaders from across the spectrum of religious, ethnic and racial backgrounds, to educate themselves,
to model civil discourse and to end the immoral and outrageous rhetoric that dominates our public square.

We have a moral responsibility to speak out against injustice, and in so doing, call our national leaders to embody compassion.

That time is now.     This statement is issued by the following organizations: the Faith Alliance of Metro AtlantaInterfaith Community Initiatives,
Compassionate AtlantaNeshama Interfaith Center, and the Islamic Speakers Bureau.

# # #FAMA, ICI, Compassionate Atlanta, Neshama Interfaith Center and the Islamic Speakers Bureau are non-partisan, not for profit organizations that do not endorse or oppose any political candidates.


PROJECT TOLERANCE    

Project Tolerance is a unique and compelling theater program designed to educate young audiences about the dangers of bullying and bigotry. Using the Holocaust as the extreme example of the consequences of racism, Project Tolerance depicts contemporary scenarios involving stereotyping, prejudice and intolerance.

A social action program of midtown Atlanta’s The Temple, Project Tolerance seeks to illuminate contemporary times through the lens of history, suggesting lines between the past and the present, while asking audiences to draw their own conclusions.

Facilitated and directed by Mira Hirsch, Project Tolerance is created and performed by teenage actors. The performance engages audiences with a short-scene format which incorporates various theatrical styles and tones. Each scene is designed to provoke thought and spark discussion, leaving conflicts unresolved and suggesting analogies which audiences must draw for themselves. Stimulating, educational and entertaining, Project Tolerance provides a fresh, challenging perspective on society’s darkest dilemmas.

The Project Tolerance performance is 35 minutes in length, and may be followed by a post-show discussion led by the program’s facilitator, or small group discussions led by the Project Tolerance actors. Project Tolerance comes directly to your school or congregation and is available for booking from February through May. Because Project Tolerance is performed by high school students, a limited number of bookings are available each season.

To schedule a performance, contact Kara Hoffman, Education Coordinator at The Temple: khoffman@the-temple.org  or  404.873.1734.NEXT PERFORMANCE: Sunday, February 21, 2016 10:15 amat The Temple 1589 Peachtree Street NE Atlanta, Georgia 30309

area. Eco-A leads the naturalist part of our walk, which will include tree ID of fall leaves, bark and tree forms and we’ll include well as some of the deep Native American history of this special corner of DeKalb, County, where Native Americans came many centuries ago to work the soft stone rock formations found in these hills. Unitarian Universalist Minister, and FAMA Board Member Emeritus, Rev. Marti Keller, will facilitate a discussion focusing on appreciation and thankfulness.

We invite members of all religious traditions to enlighten us to myriad perspectives about the natural world, our relationship to it, and to each other. You are encouraged to share readings, personal writings, stories, or other inspirational thoughts and sentiments on the topic with the group.

We’ll walk approximately 1.5 miles, slow and easy, and end with an interfaith discussion about the changing seasons and how our lives and faiths reflect the larger cycles of which we are a part. Eco-A leads the naturalist part of our walk, featuring the rich diversity of native plants and trees found in these beautiful west Atlanta woodlands. We will then gather at a special outdoor meeting circle along the banks of a tributary of Utoy Creek, where Valerie Morvan, Director of Faith Alliance of Metro Atlanta, will facilitate our discussion.

We invite members of all religious traditions to enlighten us to myriad perspectives about the natural world, our relationship to it, and to each other.  You are encouraged to share readings, personal writings, stories, or other inspirational thoughts and sentiments on the topic with the group.

Cascade Springs is the perfect setting to talk about the commonalities we all share with nature, and the often intangible ways of understanding and sharing the experience of life on our planet.

The Death Penalty: A Closer Look              

Faith communities  play an enormous role in encouraging people to examine their stand on capital punishment. Knowing the facts, the social impact and the experience of those facing execution can help us serve in this important role.

Discussions of the death penalty stir divergent opinions, strong emotions and big questions. Recent cases in Georgia are in the national headlines.  In March of this year, Kelly Gissendaner’s execution was delayed due to concerns about the single drug to be used in her procedure. Since then, the debate about acceptable methods for execution has heated up across other states . The Georgia case Foster vs. Chapman, which challenges race bias in jury selection, will be heard by the US Supreme Court this fall.

We will learn the status  of the the death penalty in the US and Georgia and who it affects. We will hear how one man faced the death sentence, was paroled and now ministers to prisoners.  Please join us.

Our Speakers  

katie

 Katie Chamblee, Liman Fellow at the Southern Center for Human Rights (SCHR) will present the state of the death penalty in the United States, how far we’ve come, where we are going, and how Georgia fits into the national picture. Katie graduated from Yale Law School in 2012 and joined SCHR in 2013.  Her work focuses on death penalty cases in Georgia and Alabama.  She is a member of the New York and Georgia bars.

b moore

Billy Neal Moore will speak to us about his journey from 16 1/2 years on death row for a murder he committed during an armed robbery, to his present day work in Christian ministry. Mr. Moore grew spiritually through his ordeal on death row, and, partly due to the intervention of Mother Teresa, was released on parole in 1990. He went on to develop a Christian ministry to prisoners. He speaks internationally about redemption, faith, and in opposition to the death penalty.
