Moral Monday CT – Feb. 23rd

Moral Monday CT will take place in Hartford on Monday, February 23th, beginning at 3:00 PM at the Christ Church Cathedral parish house, 45 Church St. (across from Hartford Stage).

Although recent high-profile police killings of African American men and boys has focused the nation’s attention on police violence in communities of color, American racism is not limited to such violence, and it is not just in Ferguson, MO or Staten Island, NY. It’s everywhere, and we are invited to struggle against it together.
Pre-Moral Monday Nonviolent Direction Action TRAINING will take place at the Trinity College Chapel on Friday, Feb. 2oth at 6:00 PM.

Our good friend, Bishop John Selders of Amistad UCC in Hartford says this about Moral Monday, CT:
Faith leaders and social justice activists from across Connecticut have been in conversation. We’ve decided to do more and be very public about it. We’ve called for a Moral Monday event to take place on, February 23, 2015, in Hartford.  As many of you may know, the Moral Monday grassroots movement of North Carolina, led by The Rev. William Barber and others, has been for over a year gathering and protesting wide-ranging issues under the blanket of unfair treatment and discrimination. We are asking faith leaders, lay and clergy along with social justice- minded folk across Connecticut, to converge on downtown Hartford to let our voices be seen and heard. We will gather at 3:00 p.m. February 23rd, Christ Church Cathedral, 45 Church Street, Hartford, for a time of witnessing and then we will go to the streets for a time of public demonstrating.
Will you join us?
