Film & Forum Pursues Racial, Social Justice

How will you use your calling to help?

How will you contribute?

These are some of the questions viewers are asked by Injustice Anywhere, a documentary born from conversations and work within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We are invited to screen this film with the community on Saturday, Aug. 13 from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at Meharry Medical College, Cal Turner Center Auditorium (1005 Dr. D.B. Todd Jr. Blvd.). A panel discussion featuring top faith and civic leaders will follow the viewing.

After the fatal shooting of young adult Michael Brown almost two years ago in Ferguson, Mo., several Disciples clergy and laypersons joined others urging justice in Ferguson and beyond. Injustice Anywhere shares a story of collective experiences from individuals impacted by these events. It captures a still-unfolding story about how our church tradition seeks to achieve justice for everyone.

If you are interested in attending and/or carpooling, please let Kaye in the church office know by Aug. 9. Learn more detail about this project at

This film event will help prepare Vine Street participants for the Regional Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Tennessee Oct. 7-8. Wrestling directly with the issue of racism through worship and conversation, the event’s goal is for all to leave the Assembly equipped to be agents for wholeness in our fragmented world.
