bilde (5)Reverend Jim Holley, Ph.D.  lead a PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY at

NOON with urban and suburban ministers who will host A NIGHT OF HEALING

tomorrow night.

The press conference will be held at Historic Little Rock Baptist Church, 9000

Woodward Avenue in Detroit.

A NIGHT OF HEALING will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at Historic

Little Rock Baptist Church, 9000 Woodward Avenue in Detroit.

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and the family of Steve Utash — the motorist who was

beaten by an angry mob as he tried to help a child after an accident with his truck last

week — have confirmed that they will participate in this event.

“A multiracial coalition of suburban and urban pastors is coming together to pray for

peace and healing for Mr. Utash and the entire Metro Detroit community,” says

Reverend Holley. “We need to send a crystal clear statement to the world that the

violent actions of a few individuals will not cast a cloud of negativity over our city. We

are inviting everyone to participate to show support that this is a region of hope, peace

and renewal.”

The coalition of Catholic, Jewish, Protestant and Baptist religious leaders will make a

strong appeal to the community to maintain a spirit of peace and calm as the summer

months approach.

Mayor Mike Duggan and the Family of Steve Utash Will Be There

Retired nurse Deborah Hughes, who courageously helped severely wounded Steve

Utash after the beating, will also participate in the Night of Healing.
