Hundreds of parishioners walked out of St. Sabina’s Church and into the streets on Sunday in the wake of the decisions not to indict police officers in the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases.
Father Michael Pfleger led the group from Saint Sabina Church, 1210 W 78th Place, to the intersection of 79th and Racine. Many laid down in the street for a moment of silence.
“Interrupt traffic as a symbol that we want to interrupt the injustice, the racism, the racial profiling, and the broken justice system in America,” Father Pfleger said.
Father Pfleger is calling on all pastors in Chicago to take their churches outside in peaceful protests throughout the day.
