DA Kim Ogg – POSTPONED

Due to threatening weather, our Aug. 27th event with DA Kim Ogg has been postponed.   Check back for the rescheduled date.

 

 

District Attorney Kim will be speaking at Salem on Sunday, Aug. 27, at 4:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall.

Bail Bond Reform is sorely needed because unfortunately, people with money almost always have a completely different outcome than people who have no money.  This system creates a debtor’s prison where people are imprisoned because they are poor.  None of these people have been found guilty of anything.  This unjust system has recently been declared unconstitutional in a federal court.  Not only is the system unjust, it’s expensive for taxpayers to keep people in jail who are not dangerous and have not been judged guilty.

To learn more about how our bails bond system works, to ask questions, to hear recommendations for how the system should change, join us on Sunday, Aug. 27, at 4:00p.m. in the Parish Hall to hear District Attorney Kim Ogg’s views on this topic.  Bishop Michael Rinehart of our Gulf Coast Synod will be with us as well and can offer theological viewpoints.

A dinner will be served following the meal.  A contribution of $5 is suggested for the meal.  To RSVP to attend the meal please notify the Church Office with your name and number of people attending.
