NCIC Thanksgiving Breakfast Signifies a" Call for Justice and Peace" In Wake of Occupy Oakland Violence

All Pastors Interreligious Thanksgiving Breakfast is a call to action for leaders of all faiths to pray and take action for the good of all. The Clergy is part of the 99% of the Occupy Movement. 

The violence against protestors at Occupy Oakland who were assembled lawfully and who were exercising their “right to freedom of speech” October 25 and with the reported violence overnight November 2 have created a sense of urgency for clergy to perform their role to “call for justice and call for peace.”
