After USF Dr. Erin Kimmerle and team released the initial report on the victims that were found at the Dozier School for Boys, Dale Landry of the Florida NAACP contacted the Florida Council of Churches. The Council was invited to bring together faith representatives statewide to assist in advising state authorities in the appropriate manner for the victims of Dozier to be re-interred and memoralized. The Interfaith Commission for Florida Children and Youth was established. It has met as needed and initiated significant conversations on the issue of the school, its victims and its legacy. Below is a recent interview with executive director, Rev. Dr. Russell Meyer of the council and convener of the commission.
