The Rev. John Perry is on a mission of unity. In the months following the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery, a pastor and local NAACP president has taken to the streets to engage those who may look and believe differently but share a common goal — to bring people together in the fight against hatred and systemic racism.
“I’m looking to share. I believe we must acknowledge that racism and its effects are a part of today’s American culture. Thereafter, collectively as individuals, we have to commit to the work of improving race relations,” Perry said.
