Standing Down Is Not An Option! Join Us On New Year’s Eve For A National Watch Night Service
In light of the challenges facing America, Repairers of the Breach will co-host a “Moral Revival Poor People’s Campaign Watch Night Service” on New Year’s Eve.
Please join us on Dec. 31 at 10 p.m in Washington D.C. at Metropolitan A.M.E. Church, 1518 M Street, NW. – the site where the funerals of both Rosa Parks and Frederick Douglass were held. If you're not in D.C. you can watch the service on the Repairers of the Breach livestream.
You can also find or organize a watch party in your community via Facebook.
The watch night service grows out of “The Revival: Time for A Moral Revolution of Values” national 22-state tour, and calls on the nation to resist extremism and join the movement to advance state-based moral public policy agendas. The social justice event welcomes all including people of faith and those who may not be persons of faith but who have deep moral convictions.
During the service, three moral declarations will be outlined including:
- A call for people of conscience to make a moral decision to enlist in the fight against systemic racism, poverty, child poverty, extremism, denial of healthcare, voter suppression, environmental injustice, xenophobia, unchecked militarism, homophobia, transphobia, and our current moment in history;
- A call for a race and poverty audit of America;
- A call for a national Moral Revival Poor People’s Campaign in 2017 and 2018 demanding that we address systemic policy-based racism, poverty, healthcare, and xenophobia.
The service will include sermons and testimonies from leaders of various social justice struggles, as well as people who have been personally impacted by these social justice issues. Religious leaders will commit not to retreat in this moment, and to stand up for state-based moral public policy agendas.
Repairers of the Breach will be joined by Healing of the Nations Ministries, Union Theological Seminary, Auburn Seminary, School of the Conversion, and the Kairos Center for Rights, Religions, and Social Justice.
Thank you for everything you do to support the moral revival and the movement for justice.
