Satish C. Sekar and Bishop Gregg L.Greer will address two issues first is the Death Penalty -In early May Governor Bruce Rauner proposed reinstating the death penalty in Illinois for mass killers and people who slay law enforcement officers, injecting the idea into his re-election campaign by rewriting a gun control bill and sending it back to lawmakers. Satish is filming a documentary with One World Transatlantic Global Media and also plans to meet and greet with local human rights groups including Amnesty International.  

Satish C. Sekar (born September 1963) is a British author and journalist, and a consultant in forensic evidence. Sekar has specialized since the 1990s in the investigation of miscarriages of justice. His work has been published in newspapers including The Guardian, The Independent and Private Eye, and he has also worked for television documentaries including Panorama and Trial And Error. He has worked on a number of high-profile cases in the UK including the Cardiff Newsagent Three, Gary Mills and Tony Poole (wrongly convicted in 1990 for the murder of Hensley Wiltshire), the M25 Three, and Michelle and Lisa Taylor (wrongly convicted in 1992 for the murder of Alison Shaughnessy). He also worked on the case of the Merthyr Tydfil Two (Donna Clarke and Annette Hewins), presenting scientific findings to South Wales Police regarding the fire that resulted in the police’s expert accepting his conclusions that the petrol bought by Hewins that night was not the petrol used in the fatal fire. 

In 1992, his work helped overturn the convictions of the Cardiff Three and while researching a book about the case, Fitted In: The Cardiff 3 and the Lynette White Inquiry, he uncovered errors in the original evaluation of forensic evidence from the crime scene. The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology said that Sekar’s “extraordinary work on the case of the Cardiff 3 [put] academic criminology to shame.” Sekar is the Founder of the Fitted In Project.

 Freedom First International

The Freedom First International was originally formed in 2009 and is an international non-governmental organization that conducts research and advocacy on human rights. Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois with scheduled offices in New York City, London ,and Orlando, Florida. The main aim of Freedom First is to advance the cause of civil rights, human rights and Social Justice in America in relation to liberation from unjust economic, political, or social conditions.

It has been described as “an interpretation of Christian faith through the poor’s suffering, their struggle and hope, and a critique of society as an example “Christianity through the eyes of the poor” From its inception, this has been the vision of President/Founder Gregg L Greer.

As its title suggests “Freedom First,”, was born out of a rich civil rights tradition because it’s Founder Gregg L. Greer wanted to help preserve the historical legacy of The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, or S.C.L.C (video,above) came primarily from the respect for the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In late 2009 while attending at Southern Christian Leadership Conference Meeting at Historical Ebenezer Baptist Church (which in 1960 Dr. King, Jr. became a co-pastor of Ebenezer with his father, “Daddy” King. King remained in that position until his death in 1968. Greer found the S.C.L.C Founder vision and applied it in building his organization. 


Greer started the Freedom First International as an initiative that searches for ideas that help bring social change by connecting thousands of people from all around the world believing that church leadership should play a major part in the lives of all, and church leaders should play a more significant role in communities around the world. First Freedom International was also influenced by an existing social theory that emphasizes of practice (or, more technically, “Praxis”) over doctrine in the church which included Servant Christian base communities (SCBCs).

Liberation Theology is the guiding principle of Freedom First, as it strives to be a bottom-up movement in practice, with Biblical interpretation and practice designed by lay practitioners themselves, rather than by the hierarchy.

Greer was called to the ministry while in his early teens and became an Associate Pastor (Minister) in the (COGIC) Church of God Christ-denomination in the Hampton Roads Virginia Area. His desire for social uplift came while in undergraduate studies as a university Criminal Justice Major and member of A.C.L.U American Civil Liberties Union as student advocate against the death penalty.

Greer’s early work with the ACLU In late 2009, while attending Governors State University in the Chicago Area taught him to be an outspoken critic of Economic Oppression, genocide, and the death penalty. In late 2010, while attending Liberty University, Greer began searching for ideas that help bring social change by connecting thousands of people from all around the world, and generating ideas that gain national attention and give the communities a voice.

As a long-term member of the SCLC-Southern Christian leadership Conference -Greer follows the personal example of both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, the SCLC’s Founder, and the current President of the S.C.L.C Reverend CT Vivian, a close friend of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.
