Christian Faith Leaders Call On Biden-Harris Administration To Take Immediate Executive Action For a United States Truth Commission
April 18, 2021, LOS ANGELES, CA — Today, social impact production company Fame Currency and its racial justice initiative #breathewithme Revolution joined forces with Sojourners and the Black Music Action Coalition to produce a national call on the Biden-Harris Administration to establish a United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (TRHT).
In a new campaign video, “The Word is Calling Us,” #breathewithme Revolution and Sojourners have convened faith leaders from across the U.S.– who represent millions of faithful Christians who are committed to racial justice– to leverage their voices to demand action to end systemic racism. The video premieres today exclusively via NowThis.
Although the Bible and Christian faith have been misused and abused to justify slavery, Jim Crow segregation, and white supremacy, the “The Word Is Calling Us” video powerfully shows that the words of scripture hold all Christians accountable to always stand for love, justice, and truth.
“This chorus of diverse Christian leaders offers both powerful pastoral and prophetic word to our nation that we must engage in the deeper work of truth-telling as a prerequisite for racial healing and transformation. Now is the time for the Biden Administration to create a Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Commission, building on the linked efforts through HR 40 to establish a Commission to investigate and make recommendations around overdue reparations,” said Rev. Adam Russell Taylor, president of Sojourners.
