Our country’s history of slavery and genocide continues to shape all of us today, imposing trauma and violence upon people of color’s bodies and nurturing internalized superiority in white people. Knowing that all of us are dehumanized in this reign of white supremacy, we pray for God to empower each of us to tear down this idol and declare God’s reign in the struggle for freedom.

Clergy Arrested as "Moral Mondays" Protests Legislative Corruption and Inaction

Sixteen people were arrested Monday afternoon at the Capitol as more than 100 faith, labor and community leaders gathered for a ‘Moral Mondays’ vigil to protest what they called Albany’s broken system, which leaves New York’s families, students and workers to struggle needlessly. Clergy and advocates held 16 Moral Mondays rallies at the Capitol this year, calling for a range of policies, including more funding for public education and anti-hunger programs, an increase to the minimum wage, an end to long-term solitary confinement, and tax reform.
