CLEVELAND – An estimated two thousand people packed an interfaith service Monday night in Cleveland with the goal of making the city a “more just and prosperous place.”
Greater Cleveland Congregations united people from 40 different churches, synagogues, mosques, and neighbored centers at the Masonic Auditorium. The event was part political convention, part religious revival. It launched a six-month plan to address five concerns: education, jobs, healthcare, criminal justice reform and sustainable food.
“Tonight we come together as people of faith to share our vision of a greater Cleveland,” said Rev. Tracy Lind of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral.
