This campaign has grown out of the National Council of Churches in the US, as we have discerned a call to ecumenically intensify our work together toward racial justice. The challenge is to our churches and nation to tell the truth about the complicity, compliance an coercions of racism in this time, believing truth will lead to transformative action in both church and society.
ACT stands for Awaken, Confront and Transform.
SAVE THE DATES!
The campaign will launch April 3, 4 and 5 in Washington, DC. The United Methodist Church is joining other churches in the United States to bring thousands of Christians to the Mall on Capitol Hill on April 4 for a rally and kick-off event. There will also be a worship service the evening of April 3 and organized visits to legislators on April 5.
All United Methodists are encouraged to attend. This is an issue that effects all of our churches and all of this great nation. So, bring your whole church. Rent a bus and come together with local Pan-Methodist congregations in your area.
Volunteers are now being amassed and more information about this huge event will be coming soon.
