CHICAGO (CBS) — A new organization called “Fierce Women of Faith” was meeting at the University of Chicago on Friday, declaring a state of emergency over the gun violence in the city.
WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports the multicultural group of clergy and lay people from the city and suburbs share a belief that faith, as a foundation, can lead to change.
“What affects the city affects all of us, in terms of the violence,” said Rev. Marcenia Richards, pastor of the Life Center, and founder of Fierce Women of Faith. “Let’s talk about it; the difficult questions. Let’s ask ourselves what are those questions that are keeping us so segregated?”
