On February 15 the Rev. Alfred Loua was invited to give the invocation at the New York City Council Stated Meeting, where he noted the diversity of the city and invoked Trinity’s core values. “Holy and undivided Trinity, one God, I thank you for your presence among us and in our hearts here at this moment. Please, look upon us. In the City of New York, we are women and men with different sexual orientations; we are citizens, immigrants documented and to be documented; we are ...believers of different faith traditions and non-believers; we are from different horizons, we are people of color and white; we are of diverse opinions; but you have brought us together to live and work with you… I ask your blessing upon your trusted servant-leaders, the Council members of New York City, as they gather to do the work you have given them to do. May their meeting be governed by your pastoral spirit of righteousness, inclusiveness, compassion, social justice and stewardship!”

And those who engage with the mentally ill in highly charged situations require adequate training and resources to do so. That is why we join the Right Rev. Andrew ML Dietsche, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, in his call for the New York City Police Department to provide Crisis Intervention Training to all police officers by the end of 2018. We believe this additional training, applied department-wide, could help avert more tragedies like Deborah Danner’s death.”
