A protest in Barrington shouts: No more!

“We are here because everyone is just grieving over so many different things – racism caused by white supremacy, the gun violence, the deaths of children, the denial of truth, and the hate,” said organizer Trinki Anderson Brueckner of Barrington Interfaith Partners.

Members and allies of Barrington Interfaith Partners, including the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, Riverside Covenant Church, Saint James Lutheran Church, Saint John’s Episcopal Church, Saints Matthew and Mark Episcopal Church, Sisters of Mercy and Temple Habonim stood outside the Barrington Congregational Church on Sunday for about an hour on a host on intersecting evils.

“We are here because everyone is just grieving over so many different things – racism caused by white supremacy, the gun violence, the deaths of children, the denial of truth, and the hate,” said organizer Trinki Anderson Brueckner of Barrington Interfaith Partners. “So standing here for an hour is not much – but it says something. And maybe it will inspire people to do a little bit more.”

Of particular importance was bringing five bills currently stalled in the Rhode Island General Assembly to the floor of Bothe the House and Senate for a straight up or down vote. “The bills have been in committee for years. It’s time to pass these bills,” said a woman at the protest.
