The National Moral Day of Action will be held in all 52 state capitols and the District of Columbia on Monday, September 12, at 11:00 a.m. Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, Rev. Dr. James A. Forbes, Rev. Dr. Traci Blackmon, and Sister Simone Campbell ask people of faith and courage to join their effort demanding an end to extremist politics and policies across the nation. In Frankfort, we will call on our governor, senators, and legislators to move toward policies that benefit the few and are just, fair, and guarantee a better life for the majority of the people. Rally attendees will deliver the “Higher Ground Moral Declaration.” You can read it here and sign the document at this website.
If you would like to join Lauren Jones Mayfield in Frankfort on September 12, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
This rally is the first of three events for our church as we delve further into the conversation on race and racism, nationally, here in Louisville, and within our church family. Empower West and local churches are hosting the second event on Tuesday, October 4, 6:30-8:30 p.m., the Repair the Breach Revival. Then on Saturday, November 5, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., the Justice and Community Missions Ministry Groups will jointly host our own anti-racism training. Please save these dates and expect further information soon. Click here for information about the Repair the Breach Revival Movement.
