Voting Rights.  Civil Rights. Women's Rights.  LGBT Rights. So many movements for equity depend on the 14th amendment - the equality amendment - for constitutional support.   

On Sept. 22-23 we will celebrate the 14th amendment's 150 anniversary and rededicate ourselves to the work of voting rights and racial equity.  

Please join us on Sept. 22 for a workshop with the Rev. Dr. Velda Love, "For God So Loved the World."  Dr. Love leads the efforts of the United Church of Christ to advocate for racial justice.  Her presentation will help equip and inspire us to work for racial equity. 

Workshop participants will:

  • Explore practical ways to have "sacred conversation to end racism"
  • Engage with biblical texts regarding equitable treatment of all God's people
  • Learn about the mythological construction of race and the reality of racism in America
  • Participate in role play, active listening and response techniques, and learn how to invite others to be on the journey to engage with and end racism
  • Develop strategies to move from conversations to advocacy and activism

Please RSVP now for this free workshop.

I can't make it

And we hope you can join us for worship on Sept. 23.  Rep. Gwen Moore will be preaching.   

Afterward worship Sachin Chheda, director of the Fair Elections Project and a Plymouth member, will discuss the multi-pronged assault on the precious right to vote, including map-rigging/gerrymandering, Voter ID laws and other voter suppression, the 2020 Census, campaign finance laws, voter list purges, limiting registration and voting windows, and what citizen-activists can do to overcome these barriers and reclaim our democracy.  We will also have a second opportunity to meet with Dr. Love to learn how to effectively work for racial equity.   

Please contact me if you have any questions: Andrew Warner, 4147586233, warnerccf@gmail.com. 

Thanks for considering this event.  I look forward to seeing you on Sept. 22-23.
