In a show of solidarity with African Americans, the Livermore-Pleasanton Interfaith Clergy Association calls the community of Livermore to step outside their homes, Thursday, June 4, at 7:30 p.m., to be visible on the street.

People are encouraged to light candles and kneel for five minutes in addition to offering prayers.

“We stand especially with individuals and communities affected by police brutality as well as individuals and communities disproportionately affected by the novel coronavirus and its societal and economic effects,” wrote the organization’s leaders.

Those participating are:

• Father B. Kwame Assenyoh, Parochial Administrator, Saint Charles Borromeo Catholic Community, Livermore

• The Reverend Eleanor P. Kilpatrick, Unitarian Universalist Church, Livermore

• The Reverend Harriet Hawkins, Minister, The Lighthouse Center for Spiritual Living Livermore Valley

• The Reverend Kathleen F. La Point-Collup, Senior Pastor, Asbury United Methodist Church, Livermore

• The Reverend Andrew D. Lobban, Rector, St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, Livermore

• Rabbi Dr. Laurence Elis Milder, Congregation Beth Emek, Pleasanton
