We face a current political and social climate that continues to belie black humanity – where, without impunity, a young black man can be followed into his grandmother’s backyard and shot in the back six times out of the 20 shots fired at him.

Will we stand on the sideline or will we join the important struggle that Black Americans & many others daily endure to live free from racism, violence & terror?

We believe we are called to lean into a ministry and theology of resistance, reclaiming the hope and power inherent in our prophetic faiths, giving us courage and healing for the days ahead.

There are many different ways that your congregation and community can enter into solidarity with us.

There will be a time of celebration and fellowship, and training around resisting State Violence, ICE Raids, 2018 Election, Digital Organizing, and the Poor Peoples Campaign Workshops.

We are inviting you to wrestle with the principalities and powers that manifest themselves in racial prejudice, systemic evil and violence, and religious apathy and complicity.

We need you here; it is our duty to firght for freedom!

Register today! Space is Limited.
