BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – We’re hearing from one pastor who was at Sunday’s protests in Hoover with other members of Faith in Action Alabama and his message for protesters and faith leaders in the community.
Dr. David Barnhart is a pastor at St. Junia United Methodist Church. He was with protesters Sunday on Highway 31 in Hoover, but wasn’t there when 25 got arrested.
He says this can’t be about just the protests – it needs to be about policy change.
He says Faith in Action is pushing for a voter registration campaign reducing voter suppression. It’s also advocating for Governor Ivey to expand Medicaid.
