“Stop the Silence,” an initiative created to help restore peace, bring comfort to George Floyd’s family and supporters, honor black lives lost, lead peaceful protests, prayers for healing and champion for justice, will host a Q & A to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Mother Emanuel AME Church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, via Facebook Live.
The discussion will be moderated by “EMANUEL” documentary producer, Pastor and activist  Dimas Salaberrios.

Pastor Dimas is continuing his mission to fight racial injustice with the newly announced “Stop The Silence” initiative, bringing community and faith leaders together in prayerful protest against police brutality and systemic racism in order to both promote awareness, and offer hope and healing.
This dialogue will help encourage reflection, understanding and meaningful education regarding issues of racial injustice in our country.

National headlines blazed the story: Churchgoers Gunned Down During Prayer Service in Charleston, South Carolina.

After a 21-year-old white supremacist opened fire in Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, nine African Americans lay dead, leaving their families and the nation to grapple with this senseless act of terror.

Featuring intimate interviews with survivors and family members, EMANUEL — from executive producers Stephen Curry and Viola Davis, co-producer Mariska Hargitay, and director Brian Ivie (The Drop Box) — is a poignant story of justice and faith, love and hate, examining the healing power of forgiveness.

The film will be available for FREE on the following platforms without a subscription through June 23: the STARZ App and STARZ On-Demand, Amazon and iTunes, AT&T, Dish, Roku Verizon, Cox, DirecTV, Mediacom NBC Universal.
