In a significant move that underscores the importance of community solidarity and justice, Rev. Al Sharpton, President and Founder of the National Action Network (NAN), is set to lead a day of powerful advocacy and prayer. This Saturday, June 1st, at 10 a.m., the NAN House of Justice in Harlem will host a community prayer session in support of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his family, following the recent guilty verdict of Donald Trump.

Trump was found guilty on all 34 counts in his criminal hush money trial, a verdict that has sent shockwaves through the nation. Amid this turbulent backdrop, Rev. Sharpton's initiative seeks to fortify the community's resolve and offer unwavering support to DA Bragg, who has been subjected to numerous threats.

"We stand together in prayer, resolute in our commitment to protect our communities from threats, whether they be physical or systemic,” stated Rev. Sharpton. “District Attorney Bragg and his family will not be with us on Saturday, but we want to send a message that we are with them tomorrow and every day to come. Our prayers tomorrow will not just be for them, but for all who face the unjust brunt of systemic oppression."

Following the morning prayer, the evening promises an engaging episode of MSNBC’s Politics Nation, hosted by Rev. Sharpton. The episode will feature prominent guests including NYC Councilman Yusef Salaam, a member of the Exonerated Five; Joe Tacopina, Trump’s former attorney; and Kwame Jackson, a former contestant on The Apprentice.

Yusef Salaam, now a respected NYC Council Member, was wrongfully convicted in the Central Park Jogger case, a case infamously marked by Trump’s full-page newspaper ads calling for the teenagers’ execution. His perspective, combined with Tacopina’s legal insights and Jackson’s revelations about Trump’s reported use of racial slurs, promises a compelling discussion on the former president’s controversial legacy.

The prayer gathering and the Politics Nation episode collectively aim to shed light on the broader issues of justice, systemic oppression, and the ongoing challenges faced by those standing against powerful adversaries. The unity and strength demonstrated through these events highlight the community's dedication to supporting one another through times of adversity.

Houston Style Magazine urges its readers to tune into Politics Nation and participate in the collective effort to support DA Bragg and all those fighting for justice. Let us come together, in prayer and in action, to uphold the values of equity and resilience in the face of formidable challenges.
