To sing about freedom and to pray for its coming is not enough. Freedom must be actualized in history by oppressed peoples who accept the intellectual challenge to analyze the world for the purpose of changing it. -James H. Cone
In the spirit of the emancipatory holiday of Juneteenth, when we celebrate the freedom of enslaved Black people in the U.S., we extend a call to DC area faith-based institutions to join us in commemorating this special day. Whether it's a sermon, evening of prayer, liberation from the pulpit, or a community conversation, we ask faith leaders to spread the word and explore the theme of Black liberation, emancipation, and freedom with their faith community. We also invite places of worship to support our organizing work by taking up a collection to donate toward our work of organizing for our right to housing, income, & wellness in DC.
If you would like to participate, please sign up below and we will follow up with more details!
