Striking a blow against racism and injustice and responding to the killing of George Floyd, Pastor Ralph E. Williamson and the members of Christ Our Redeemer AME Church (COR) will hold a Unity March and Rally on Saturday, June 13, at 10 a.m.

Churches, community leaders and law enforcement officials will participate in the event, which is co-sponsored by COR Community Development Corporation. Hundreds of people are expected to join the two-mile march that will start at the church, located at 45 Telsa in Irvine, travel to Los Olivos Shopping Center and return to the edifice for the rally.

Pastor Jason Aguila of Arise Church in Irvine, Pastors Chad Halliburton and Brian Hill of Rock Harbor Church in Mission Viejo, Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes and Irvine Police Chief Mike Hamel will participate as well.

Williamson said the two-fold aim of the event is to stand in solidarity against racism, injustice, and division and to emphasize voter registration and participation for all citizens.

“The goal is not to stop at voter registration, but we must educate voters on the candidates that support the policies that matter to our community such as changes to our criminal justice system, policing standards and more,” insisted Williamson.

He added, “We hereby call on faith leaders, law enforcement, community advocates, elected officials, and anyone who believes in justice for all to stand with us. This will be a peaceful protest and assembly — outside agitators are encouraged to stay away!”

To learn more, call COR Church at (949) 955-0014 or visit corchurch.org.
