The world is watching Minneapolis as the Derek Chauvin trial continues and while another police officer shot and killed another Black man in the metro area’s suburbs this week. How are some faith leaders responding in this situation?
“The Twin Cities Interfaith Movement Chaplains are all volunteer clergy, lay leaders, and spiritual practitioners who practice and lead by example in cultural competency, de-escalation, trauma awareness, self-care, and peaceful, prayerful and healing presence.”
Their model could be adapted to other mass protests and situations. Learn more at their website or from this article highlighting their work, Minnesota ‘crisis mode chaplains’ seek to heal trauma of George Floyd’s death.
