FAMA Statement On Recent Unrest

Faith Alliance of Metro Atlanta (FAMA) joins our collective voice to those who call for a peaceful transition of presidential and administrative power. FAMA, a coalition of clergy, faith leaders, and community members from across the spectrum of religious traditions in metropolitan Atlanta, stands for peace and democracy and repudiates those whose behavior threatens the highest ideals of our nation.

FAMA calls for justice against those who perpetrated violence and chaos at the United States Capitol on Wednesday, January 6th, 2021. We applaud and support elections officials and volunteers across the political spectrum for working tirelessly to ensure safe and fair voting throughout our country.

FAMA’s board of directors aligns our voice with those who call for all Americans, irrespective of their political alliances, to join together, to cease divisive partisan rhetoric, to build bridges across difference, and reinstitute civil society which is at the foundation of our democracy.
