 On behalf of the Social Action Commission, Chair, Bishop Reginald Jackson and former chair, Bishop Carolyn Tyler Guidry, we thank the faithful and loyal members of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and petition-signers across the globe for all that you did to help make this vision a reality. The successful outcome of this effort is the result of all of us who prayed, signed petitions, etc., but we owe a special debt of gratitude of thanks to AME, Vernon E. Jordan and Rodney Slater for their unequalled assistance, steadfastness, and tithing of time and talent!
