Description

Accompanied by this letter:

Dear Louisville Seminary Community:

This afternoon (June 3, 2020), at 4:30 p.m., leaders of higher education institutions in greater Louisville and Kentuckiana will join protesters in Jefferson Square to stand in solidarity against racism and the social injustices that have caused much pain throughout our community and throughout our country.

The Louisville Seminary Community is invited to join. Please attend ONLY if you are comfortable doing so. Otherwise, please keep all advocates for justice in our community in your prayers. And continue to pray and advocate for victims of racism, police brutality, and all forms of systemic oppression.

I, along with my colleagues in higher education, have endorsed the following statement. Again, my thanks to our students, faculty, employees, alums, and friends who continue to advocate for justice and healing in our broken world.

In the Presence,

Alton

Note: The Rev. Dr. Alton Pollard, III is the President and Professor of Religion and Culture, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY
