An interview with the Rev. Chuck Currie
The world’s attention has been focused on the city of Portland, Oregon, as protests against injustice have continued every day since the death of George Floyd. Recently, federal police, bearing neither name nor badge, have arrived in Portland and have been filmed abducting peaceful protestors and bystander into unmarked vehicles and detaining them without charge.
Rev. Chuck Currie is United Church of Christ clergy and the Director of Center for Peace and Spirituality, a University Chaplain, and Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Pacific University in Portland. He joins us today to tell us what’s going on and how clergy are responding to this crisis.
