“The Fire This Time” pays homage to our ancestor James Baldwin’s book The Fire Next Time.
The Fire This Time is a call to our community. We can’t continue being dehumanized at the hands of police time and time again. This is why we’re gathering a Prophetic Assembly on Policing tomorrow, Thursday, September 10 at 4:00 PM.
Our hope is that community leaders, those with lived experiences of unjust policing, faith leaders, advocates, social service workers, and all accomplices for justice can engage in a series of coalition building to drive systemic change here in NJ.
