The Rev. Gary Johnson, president, Clergy for Change (second right), is flanked by community activists including: Rev. Nathaniel Wilcox, executive director, P.U.L.S.E; Rev. James Pacley, the new president for P.U.L.S.E.; Darrin Baldwin of Sweetwater; and Fred Davis, a former inmate now working for ex-offenders rights at a recent press conference. Johnson says that while some of Miami-Dade Countys ministers may support casino gambling, he and his colleagues represent other clergy and activists that are 100 percent against casinos in Miami or Miami-Dade County.
