This festival is not for those who wish to gather information without an urgent need to change! Americans continue to debate the shape and extent of racism in society. Yet shootings of unarmed African-Americans, disproportional incarceration and poverty rates, and a continuing list of disparities remind us as the Church and as citizens that the U.S. must continue to press ahead with addressing issues of racism and white supremacy. Politicians are promoting bigoted ideas and organizations. Many whites have watched the crisis unfold and have said, “I didn’t know that was still happening… What can I do?” Because so many people remain to be reached, we are organizing a second Racial Awareness Festival in 2017. Our long-term goal is to make this an annual event with festivals addressing racial awareness and healing nationwide. Month by month, interest grows in the project.
Let us know if your group needs a place to camp out for a demonstration, protest or other act of civic engagement or civil disobedience.
We believe in being active participants in the public realm.
Thank you for the generosity of your hospitality. I've long felt that religion has lost its way, so far from the message of Christ, but you have restored my faith. Thank you for your good work in the world. --Gabriella Cordova
On behalf of the National Korean American Service and Education Consortium (NAKASEC), thank you so much for allowing us to use your church facilities for the Women's March. We would not have been able to participate in the numbers we did without your generous support. In solidarity, Becky Belcore
Together with the entirety of the Women's March DC Local Org. we are writing to thank you for your tremendous support and positive energy as you worked with us to make the March the tremendous success it was. The Church's basement was ideally suited...for the sign-making parties, the love and support generally and for being you: Our gratitude--Elizabeth and DC Local Ambassadors
