ACT DelegatesThe “A.C.T. - Awaken, Confront, Transform - to End Racism Rally,” drew clergy, laypeople and peace advocates from diverse races, creeds and faith tradition to Washington DC last month. Our own Joanie McClellan, of the CPC's Justice & Witness Team, attended on behalf of our conference. The event was sponsored by the National Council of Churches, Sojourners and many other organizations to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination on April 4, 1968. There were various activities scheduled along with an amazing ecumenical worship service at the St Sophia Cathedral on Tuesday evening and the ACT NOW! Rally on the Mall, the next day, where stages were set with the (real) Capitol as background and featured such celebrity speakers and singers as Danny Glover and gospel singer Yolanda Adams. Joanie met activists "Ben and Jerry" (ice cream, of course) and author of "Dear White Christians" Jennifer Harvey, after they addressed the crowd. The ACT NOW! events culminated with visits to Congress by hundreds of participants, on Thursday as the assembled group prepared to leave. Much more to report as we continue with actions and activities to finally end racism.
