In 2020, Faith & Blue was launched to facilitate safer, stronger, more just, and unified communities by directly enabling local partnerships among law enforcement professionals, residents, businesses, and community groups through the connections of local faith-based organizations. The initiative aims to re-calibrate police-community relations through solutions-focused, in-person, socially distanced, and/or virtual activities that are organized jointly by faith-based or other community groups and law enforcement agencies.
UTHSC Campus Police, in partnership with several law enforcement entities and faith-based organizations, invite you to celebrate the Faith & Blue initiative with three events:
On Friday, October 6th, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., in Health Sciences Park, at Madison Avenue and S. Dunlap Street. officers along with faith-based organizations will be providing meals and distributing personal items to those in need.
Saturday, October 7th, at 9 a.m. a free Zumba class will be held in the Health Science Park under the pavilion. Immediately following from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Faith and Blue Field Day events will begin. This event will consist of law enforcement agencies and faith-based organizations uniting to provide games, food, and activities for the community.
The Faith & Blue Church in the Park will take place on Sunday, October 8th, from 9 a.m. to noon, in Health Sciences Park. This event will feature a church service and lunch will be provided afterward.
We hope to see you in attendance. Please contact Shanika Mays at 901.448.6450 for more information.
