Webinar: 29 September 2022, 7:30pm.

Following the fatal Metropolitan Police-related shooting of Chris Kaba in south London on 5 September 2022, churches and faith-based organisations have appealed for compassion and justice for a wounded community.

The Racial Justice Advocacy Forum, which draws its membership from Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, Baptists Together, the Methodist Church, the United Reformed Church, the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Sam Sharpe Project, Churches Together in England, the Ascension Trust, The Evangelical Alliance, The National Church Leaders Forum, Movement for Justice and Reconciliation, Christian Aid and the Salvation Army have been calling for prayers for the Kaba family, for Chris’ friends and the wider community. The RJAF is also appealing to the IOPC (Independent Office for Police Conduct) for a timely investigation in order to help restore confidence and reduce the rising tensions in the area.

The RJAF is keen to point out that churches and parachurch groups have experience in working as conduits in communities that have been alienated from the police, and to offer support to those who are seeking to develop a dialogue around these concerns.

Join us on this webinar that aims to better equip churches and communities to respond to critical incidents, and to engage with the police to build a safer society.
