“Today’s social justice climate dictates that we model what a just world looks and feels like,” said Cager.

“We welcome all to attend this morning of faith and action and for the teens who attend, this will be an opportunity to join the leadership initiative or find out more information,” added Simonds.

Hastings served as an attorney, civil rights activist and judge before being elected to Congress as the first African-American from Florida since the post-Civil War period. Currently, Hastings is a senior member of the House Rules Committee, which determines the terms and conditions that legislation is considered.
