 ISAIAH Week of Righteous Resistance



  
GFMBC Family,

ISAIAH Week of Righteous Resistance  
July 10th- July 15th
In light of the immoral attacks on Black churches in recent weeks, thousands of faith leaders across the country will stand in resistance to the continued brutalization of Black and Brown bodies and spirits through police brutality, hate crimes and through an economy that consistently exploits workers of color. Join the Week of Righteous Resistance (http://www.livefreeusa.org/worras we respond to the tragedy of the destruction of black churches and resist the evil of white supremacy! Here are opportunities and actions in which you and your church can participate:
Friday, July 10th: Juvenile Justice Reform Movie & Discussion

Wednesday, July 15th: Worker’s Rising March & Rally
Beginning at US Bank (800 Nicolett Mall, Minneapolis) at 1:30pm & Ending at Minneapolis City Hall by 2:30pm  
Join hundreds of Minneapolis workers, many people of color who lack basic workplace protections like paid sick days and fair scheduling, as we collectively call on the City Council to pass strong ordinances for earned sick and safe time and fair scheduling. Standing in resistance to the brutalization of Black and Brown bodies also means standing against our current economy. Together, we embrace our opportunity to build a Minneapolis that honors the sacred dignity of every person. Together, we can build an economy that honors our bodies and spirits. Organized by our partners Neighborhood Organizing for Change (NOC), CTUL and others.
Wednesday, July 15th: Minnesota Council of Churches Service of Remembrance, Repentance and Healing after Charleston at Central Lutheran Church  (333 S. 12th Street, Minneapolis), 7pm
We must practice the theology of resistance, which is saying no to hate in the name of the GOD of LOVE. We must reclaim our prophetic role of calling out evil and calling people back to GOD. We must prayerfully and generously surround our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ during this time of attack and trauma with actions of love, support and solidarity. 
Yours In The Struggle for Justice, 
Phyllis M. Hill
Lead Organizer, ISAIAH
