Act Now! Unite to End Racism
April 4, 2018 will mark the 50th
anniversary of the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The National Council of Churches will take this opportunity of commemoration to launch a multi-year effort committed to addressing racism in our country.
The Massachusetts Conference has also been committed to unmasking and eradicating racism in our lives and in our churches. We are proud and excited to be a part of this ecumenical movement to acknowledge the role Christianity in this country has played in both fighting and upholding the institution of racism. The time has come to intentionally name the evil of racism in the United States, to see and repent for our part as the Christian Church in its perpetuation, and to join together as disciples of Jesus to end its insidious influence on this country.
WE NEED TO KNOW WHO WANTS A RIDE! The Massachusetts Conference is organizing buses, and we need to know how many are needed and where they should pick people up.
The cost will be from $50-70 depending on how many people are going.

for the April 4th
event. When we know how many people are interested and where they are coming from, we will choose pickup points. It would be amazing to send buses from all over the state!
