For years UCC members and congregations have been participating in Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. This year the work continues with even greater urgency.
On June 18, 2022, hundreds of thousands of poor and low-wealth people will join with moral allies both in-person in Washington, DC, and online, in a declaration that the interlocking injustices of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, denial of health care, militarism and the false moral narrative of religious nationalism are killing all of us – and we can’t, we won’t, we refuse to be silent anymore!
First Congregational UCC in Washington, DC will provide a space of hospitality and networking for UCC members attending in person beginning at 7:30 AM Saturday, June 18. We will join in a commissioning prayer and then march together behind a UCC banner to the rally site. The rally begins at 10 a.m. at 3rd and Pennsylvania Ave NW.
