The meeting was prompted by recent and “continuous” violence in Cleveland neighborhoods, according to a news release. It  was held at 1:30 p.m. at Mount Sinai Ministries, 7510 Woodland Ave. in Cleveland.

“I know all of you that are ministers help people all the time, but I’m talking about a conscientious group of like-minded individuals that represent the clergy of this country, that represent the community of this country, that represent the business aspect of this country to come together and make a major difference,” Brown said.
