In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton will join ecumenical and inter-religious partners for ACT to End Racism April 3-5 in Washington, D.C.  The focus of the three-day event will be a rally April 4 on the National Mall. All are invited to register and join in the event:  http://www.rally2endracism.org/register/  

 

The rally’s call to action emphasizes three key points: awaken to the truth that racism is evil and hurts us all; confront racism through truth-telling and action to right the wrong; and transform the hearts, minds, and behaviors of people and institutions. Events begin April 3 with an ecumenical worship service at St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral and will be capped off by a lobby day on Capitol Hill April 5.  We challenge ourselves and our communities to join in truth-telling, leading to actions that right the wrongs, and, with God’s grace, bring healing and wholeness to all people, and unity to the nation.  

Several from GA plan to participate.
