Cathedral of Faith Church continues Black History Month Empowerment Series with a panel discussion on ‘Crime in the Black Community’

Congressman Dan Kildee, Assistant Secretary of State Heaster Wheeler join the panel for this week’s discussion on the impact of voting rights and crime.
At 10 a.m. on Saturday February 26, as part of their Crucial Conversations Series for Black History Month, Cathedral of Faith Church will sponsor a panel discussion on “Crime in the Black Community”, how voting rights contribute to laws and disproportionate sentencing.
Panelists include:
– Congressman, Dan Kildee
– Michigan Assistant Secretary of State, Heaster Wheeler
– Genesee County Prosecutor, David Leyton
– Pastor Kiyuan Thompson, Impact Church

Lawmakers across many states, including Michigan, are trying to enact legislation that will cause unjust restrictions on people of color, preventing Michiganders from voting in urban areas. The democracy for people of color in Michigan is under direct attack stateside and in the federal government due to the failure of Congress to enact federal voting legislation.

In addition, crime is surging all over the country. Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton, Asst. Secretary of State Heaster Wheeler and U.S. Representative Dan Kildee will address these issues and take questions from community members.

The forum will take place at Cathedral of Faith Church, located at 6031 DuPont St. Flint, MI 48505.
