« Go to Upcoming Event List  

On Monday, August 28th, 2017, one thousand ministers of all denominations will convene in Washington, D.C. to reaffirm their commitment to the social justice movement and stand in solidarity with the spirit and legacy of Dr. King. Clergy will hold the Trump Administration and Attorney General Jeff Sessions accountable in the wake of an increase in hate crimes, mass incarceration, and discrimination just to name a few.

We are in grave times that call for vigilance and a mobilized effort to confront the Administration on issues that are taking us backwards. Religious leaders will be summoned to reaffirm the call to their congregations that faith and conscience will drive the movement for justice in today’s times.

There will be a set of direct actions after the March tied to state legislative policy goals around these issues.

We are calling on religious leaders from ALL religions and community leaders.

Now is the time that the faith community must return to its rightful place in the words of Dr. King as the "headlight" in the struggle for justice. Join us.

If you're interested in having your religious or community leader or place of worship participate, please fill out the form in the link below:
