6 September 2019
Greetings dear friends,
Can you feel the excitement? The (U.S.)
National Trans Visibility March
on Washington is just weeks away and
Global Justice Institute
are organizing, preparing, and engaged as a sponsor and as faith leaders.
Although this is a United States-based action, the March raises the broader global impact of discrimination, oppression, and violence against trans/gender nonconforming/nonbinary people.
This is a social justice cause MCC and the Global Justice Institute care passionately about. It is with this in mind that MCCers globally are invited to participate and create a historic moment within MCC in the same way the March will make its mark in history in the U.S.
Looking for ways to participate?
Check out the NEW resources now found on the MCC website:
The link above will take you to MCC's website where you will find ways to participate beyond the March.
- Lift a Prayer
- Organize a Local Event or Watch Party
- Demonstrate solidarity: Light a Unity Candle during a worship service on 29 September
Toolkits and educational resources are included to help you create something that will have a lasting positive impact within and beyond MCC.
Seeking social justice is at the very core of MCC since its founding. So, let us join hearts and, side by side, work together working toward the day when all are treated equally and equally loved in every country that has been created in love by God.
Will you participate?
Watch for updates
as we count down the days to this historic event. God is on the move...and moving us!
Faithfully and with gratitude for all you (already) do in love,
Rev. Aaron Miller
Trans Visibility March Lead
Will you march with us?
If you are able, we hope you will join MCC and the Global Justice Institute
at the National Trans Visibility March when we march on Washington on 28 September 2019. Display MCC or GJI banners or signs that include the state/area you represent.
Hope to see you there!
