C.A.J.E.. which stands for Congregations Acting for Justice and Empowerment had their yearly meeting in Newburgh.
It’s been almost a year since C.A.J.E. held its Nehemiah action meeting, where goals and solutions are made for the year ahead.
So what has been accomplished? First, Narcan.
C.A.J.E. co-chair Richard Gregg says the group got local police and sheriff departments and EMT’s to carry Narcan.

Hundreds gathered at Shiloh Baptist Church last night for a project BUILD meeting. The group focuses on recognizing problems in the community and working towards solutions to fix them.
More than five hundred people, representing two dozen churches in Lexington came together to spark change. Monday was the first of several annual meetings held by BUILD, which stands for Building a United Interfaith Lexington through Direct Action. Each congregation created a focus group and then voted on the issue they wanted the organization to focus on in 2018.

Hundreds of people from 26 congregations gathered Monday to discuss the biggest issues facing Lexington.
The forum was organized by BUILD, Building a United Interfaith Lexington through Direct-Action, a coalition of people of faith.
“No one single person can bring about change. No one congregation can do this by themselves,” said Consolidated Baptist Church Senior Pastor, Richard Gaines. “We are seeking to do together what none of us can do on our own.”
