ACT Now: Unite to End Racism Rally
The April 4 “ACT Now: Unite to End Racism”
rally is rapidly approaching. On the 50th anniversary marking the assassination of Dr. King, 50,000 people will travel from across our nation to meet in Washington, D.C. and kick start a multi-year campaign to put an end to racism in our communities and institutions.
Among the speakers at the rally will be Bishop Vashti McKenzie, Rabbi Jonah Pesner, Jennifer Harvey, Bishop Darin Moore, Rev. Freddie Haynes, Danny Glover, Esther Lopez, Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, DeRay McKesson, Bishop Michael Curry, Phil Lee, Bishop Teresa Jefferson-Snorton, Rev. Jim Wallis, Lou Gossett, Jr., Rabbi David Saperstein, Christie Duncan-Tessmer, and many others.
The rally will be a pivotal moment in the racial justice movement. We will build a platform for all people of faith and conscience to end racism. We will mobilize people and communities from across the country to join us from April 3 to April 5
. A.C.T. to End Racism (Awaken, Confront, Transform) is our call-to-action to:
- AWAKEN ourselves to the truth that racism is ever-present, deeply rooted in American culture, and profoundly damaging to our communities.
- CONFRONT racism, speak truth to ourselves, our communities and institutions, and stand against injustice.
- TRANSFORM the hearts, minds, and behaviors of people and structures that shape society.
We call on all people of faith and conscience to join us and #ACT2EndRacism
