Diverse Group of Clergy, Laity Rally for Botham Jean
A diverse group of more than 75 clergy from the North Texas Conference gathered with a large group of laity on Sept. 19 for “United Methodists of All Colors Walk for Justice.”
The rally, organized by Rev. Edlen Cowley and the North Texas Conference African-American Clergy Fellowship, convened at the Dallas Police Department headquarters and ended with a walk to the South Side Flats apartment complex where 26-year-old Botham Jean was shot and killed by Officer Amber Guyger.
“This is not about a rush to justice,” Rev. Cowley said. “This is about Lady Justice and wanting to see that justice happen.”
