Standing Down is NOT an Option---Rev. Barber, Sister Simone, and others

Dec.31 Watch Night Service at D.C.'s Metropolitan AME Church


During the service, three moral declarations will be outlined including:

A call for people of conscience to make a moral decision to enlist in the fight against systemic racism, poverty, child poverty, extremism, denial of healthcare, voter suppression, environmental injustice, xenophobia, unchecked militarism, homophobia, transphobia, and our current moment in history;
A call for a race and poverty audit of America;
A call for a national Moral Revival Poor People’s Campaign in 2017 and 2018 demanding that we address systemic policy-based racism, poverty, healthcare, and xenophobia.
The service will include sermons and testimonies from leaders of various social justice struggles, as well as people who have been personally impacted by these social justice issues. Religious leaders will commit not to retreat in this moment, and to stand up for state-based moral public policy agendas.
