Advocating & Action

ArlingtonToLincolnMem.jpg

Next week, my husband and I will be joining America’s Journey for Justice in it’s final march into Washington D.C.  We will attend the teach-in’s and rallies and then spend Wednesday, the 16th,  meeting with Senators Menendez and Booker and Representative Garrett as advocates for Justice.  The topics are we will discuss are:

·       Voting Rights

·       Economic Injustices

·       Education Reform

·       Criminal Justice Reform

·       Environmental Justice

You can learn more about this march at:   http://www.naacp.org/ajfj

And you can hear my talk with Pastor Brian Neville describing my experiences with America’s Journey for Justice at:  https://youtu.be/aOBh9Yd6Chk

This week, I’ve also been making arrangements for two speakers to come to Hillsdale to speak with us all about racial injustices and economic injustices, respectively.  They will help us better understand the impact these issues have on our communities and our lives – and what we can do to resolve these issues.  I’ll be posting more details about these events as well as other events in the coming weeks.

I continue to ask that you pray for me in the role of Public Theology Advocate as I take a stand for justice.  Respond to this blog, or contact me directly, with your thoughts, ideas, and concerns about social justice in the Pascack Valley region.
