Where: At sites across Washington, DC, including the Lincoln Memorial and the National Mall
When: April 3-4, 2018

-Confront racism through truth-telling and action to right the wrong

The time is now! The National Council of Churches is committed to eradicating the entrenched racism that grips the United States and paralyzes our ability to see every human being as equal. In partnership with others, we confront this systemic evil in which even church people and structures are complicit and complacent. We challenge our communities and ourselves to join in truth-telling conversations leading to actions that right the wrongs, and thereby, with God’s grace, bring healing and wholeness to all people, and unity to the nation.
