Join Fellow Episcopalians in Calling for Social Change This Weekend
All are invited to take part in The Mass Poor People’s and Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly & March on Washington and to the Polls, which will be held this Saturday, June 18. The Episcopal Church is a formal partner of the organizing group, the Poor People's Campaign, owing to our shared goals of promoting access to food, health care, affordable housing, and other issues. The march is at 10:00 AM and we will gather at 9 AM on the green space nearest Madison Dr. NW between 3rd and 4th streets. We will have swag and water with us!
- To attend either in person or virtually, RSVP here.
- For in-person attendees, as we move throughout the weekend we will be using Signal (a secure way to communicate) to keep in touch. To gain access to the Signal group, text Phoebe at 781-718-0161.
- More details about the march are available at the website of the Poor People's Campaign, here.
In addition to the march, all are invited to gather with fellow Episcopalians on Friday June 17 for fellowship ahead of a community meal at the Church of the Epiphany, 1317 G St NW, Washington, DC. The space will open at 1 PM and the Episcopal Gathering will be at 4 PM, featuring speakers, prayer, and time to get to know one another. Then, all are invited to participate with the DC Poor People's Campaign in a community meal at Freedom Plaza and a prayer service at the Lincoln Memorial. Please RSVP for the Friday events here.
