RESOURCES
Act Now to End Racism - is 
an ecumenical effort to repent of the sin of racism and a rallying of people who want to end racism. There are events in Washington, D.C. in the days after Easter to witness to this long overdue need. Read more at: http://www.rally2endracism.org/

New Poor Peoples Campaign - The Michigan Conference has endorsed this campaign, and UCC church members are invited to a Moral Monday day of action on the steps of the State Capital – May 14, 2018.  Look for more information about this event under the Dream of Justice link in this newsletter.

In October of 2017, delegates to the Annual Meeting of the Michigan Conference adopted a resolution in support of the New Poor Peoples Campaign. This campaign is designed to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Poor Peoples Campaign. The Dream of Justice collaborative has been working to implement the resolution and broadcast opportunities for local church engagement. Please follow this LINK for more information written by Walt Kemnitz and Rebecca Mase.
