Evangelist Alveda King to join Activist Angela Stanton King in South Carolina for “Day of Empathy”

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019

In the wake of America’s peace talks, Black History celebrations, a very diverse Oscars Night, the outcry over the rising crimes against humanity, the current state of national emergency surrounding our national security, the PPH battle, and a very disappointing US Senate vote that sanctions the slaughter of the innocents by abortion, I’m continuing to thank God for his mercy, while encouraging us to unite as One Blood. In light of this, I’ll be joining my goddaughter Angela Stanton King for a very special “Day of Empathy” in SC on March 5, 2019. Please pray for us and join us if you can. Details below:

Activist Angela King calls for communities to unite; gather in Columbia, SC for the National Day of Empathy. Contact Jackie Jones: (316) 644-9538; jackie@truthpr.com

In an effort to “Generate Compassion on a Massive Scale for millions impacted by the criminal justice system,” social justice activist Angela Stanton-King will join diverse community leaders and foot soldiers at the Right Direction Church in Columbia, SC on March 5, 2019, to continue the wave of cries for righteous justice for oppressed Americans who have been harmed by an outdated criminal justice system in America and other crimes against humanity.

Stanton-King is the founder of The American King Foundation and goddaughter of Civil Rights activist Evangelist Alveda King. Stanton-King is partnering with #cut50 and other organizations from across the country to take part in the National Day of Empathy.

As a formerly incarcerated now liberated [book publisher https://www.stantonpublishinghouse.com/], author and reality television personality, Stanton-King feels compelled to “give back to others from the grace and mercy she has experienced.” The Day of Empathy, the first of several scheduled gatherings, all of which will include community events, rallies at city halls, state capitals and other principal religious and governmental seats across the country, will include testimonies regarding incarceration in our nation. An expected outcome will be to educate, motivate and activate leaders and laypeople to unite and resist injustice.

Last year’s Day of Empathy reached 20 million people online, brought thousands of participants together, and organized a total of 500 face-to-face meetings with lawmakers. It also paved the way for an increase in bipartisan bills; including support for Dignity for Incarcerated Women; all which coalesced to build critical momentum for the First Step Act, which was signed into law in December 2018.

The 2019 Day of Empathy will share the perspectives of Americans impacted by the current justice system – from survivors of violent crime to those who are addicted to opioids or other drugs and those who are mentally ill. This Movement brings hope to incarcerated individuals who are working to transform themselves. These are the one blood/one human race that Dr. Martin Luther King called our “brothers and sisters.”

There are people with criminal records in America who are desperately seeking a second chance, while at the same time, America’s communities are being besieged by crime, threats to public safety, and violence; crimes against humanity.

“It is time to bridge the gap, come together with compassion for a constant humanity. Join us,” said Mrs. King.

Who: Angela Stanton King, Alveda King, Dr. Herbert Bailey, and more
When: March 5, 2019 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Where: Right Direction Church International’s Family Life Center, 3506 Broad River Rd., Columbia, SC 29210
What: Day of Empathy is a national day of action to generate empathy on a massive scale for millions of Americans impacted by the criminal justice system.

POTUS Shows Love Today as Movies, Prisoners, Babies and Politics “Lit” the Wire

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

“Motives matter. Some agendas are indeed driven by envy and rivalry, but others serve humanity with a desire to foster godly love and good will.” (Ref. Philippians 1:15)

Today is Valentine’s Day. Traditionally this observance is a day for cards, candy and romance. Yet in the midst of the hoopla, babies are still dying, and many human beings in the womb and outside the womb are still victims of crimes against humanity; with abortion at the top of the list.

Meanwhile, with his latest life affirming action today, on Valentine’s Day, President Trump shines light and hope for babies in the womb, and for those who are unjustly bound in other tenuous situations.

With compassion and assurance, President Trump spoke to thousands of Americans from the Oval Office today: “Thank you very much and I want to thank all the 1,000s of pro-lifers and pro-life leaders, pastors, families and advocates for joining this call and for working with such love and devotion to build a culture that cherishes human life.”

Does anyone know that POTUS is a big fan of adoption over abortion? Considering the huge fiascoes and lies about abortion being a reproductive right, with New York and Virginia endorsing infanticide, President Trump’s adoption response today is yet another sanctity of life gain.

Meanwhile the pro-life message is currently dominating the air waves. Gosnell, Unplanned, Roe V Wade, Order of Rights and The Moral Outcry are just five of the life affirming films of this century; they are either already released or in various stages of production. There are several others that have already made or are about to make a serious mark in the atmosphere.

Here’s a short list of some other 21st century must see film firsts, including feature films and documentaries with a life affirming message:

Bella, A Distant Thunder, Maafa 21, Juno, Gimme’ Shelter, October Baby, Crescendo, 180 and 3801 Lancaster. There are many more. They all need our prayers and support.

Dionne Warwick once sang a song: “What the World Needs Now is Love Sweet Love.” How true and how sweet that truth was all those years ago, and still rings true today. Truth be told, love and justice are not blind; love is not color blind. We are the “one blood human race” of Acts 17:26. Agape, all-encompassing unconditional love never fails; for the born and unborn.

Jesus said it even better in John 13:34: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

Let’s do something different today. Let’s pray for America, and join President Trump in his compassion for the least of these exemplified in his speech today. Let’s choose adoption as an option to abortion. Let’s insist that our elected officials vote no on infanticide.

Let’s show some real love in America for a change. Happy Valentine’s Day.
