State of Emergence: Faith Filled People Rally for Racial Justice @ Ohio Statehouse | Columbus | Ohio | United States

Gather with Unitarian Universalists, in collaboration with UU Justice Ohio, the Ohio Student Association, the People’s Justice Project, and our multi-faith partners, for an interfaith event focusing on truth telling, fortification and commitment to work boldly for Black liberation. Join Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, Lena K. Gardner, Alicia Garza, Dr. Melissa Harris Perry, President Rev. Peter Morales, and other Movement for Black Lives and multifaith leaders for this year’s General Assembly Public Witness.

A mass movement for Black liberation continues to grow across the United States. The movement calls us- as people of faith and conscience- to center the lives and experiences of Black people as we build an intersectional, anti-racist movement that transforms ourselves, our communities and our collective power. State of Emergence will complement programming about organizing for racial justice at GA 2016 including the Black Lives of UU and Building a Transformative Movement for Racial Justice workshop tracks, coupled with programming in general session, worship and healing/ritual space.
