Brothers and Sisters,
 
I invite you to join me and others from the Virginia Synod and ELCA in responding to Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton’s call to gather for the National Council of Churches’ rally in Washington DC at the National Mall  on April 4 from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PMACT NOW: Unite to End Racism

Honestly facing our own prejudices, confessing our sinfulness and complicity in perpetuating injustice against so many throughout history is an urgent and ongoing need. We must ACT NOW to build bridges to a more just and inclusive future. One way we can continue this quest is to gather in Washington D.C. with thousands of others.

Below are some specifics shared by Bishop Eaton that may assist you in your planning. Attached you will find the rally Vision Statement and recent Event Details memo from the National Council of Churches' (NCC) planning team.

I hope to see you on April 4th. 
Peace!
Bishop Bob Humphrey
