LIFE (Lee Interfaith for Empowerment)

LIFE is a church-based community-action partnership organized to unite the prayers and actions of member churches to work together for justice in Lee County.

 

 

Fort Myers UCC joined LIFE in March 2017 and is committed to being a strong supporter of this young organization. In September, we will begin the process to select a new justice ministry focus for 2018. In the meantime LIFE will KOKO (Keep On Keeping On) as we monitor the commitments dealing with unsolved murders made by the Fort Myers Police Chief, City Manager and State Attorney at the Nehemiah Action and as we continue to support the use of “Civil Citations” rather than arresting first time youth offenders who commit any of 12 specific non-violent misdemeanor offense.
