RSVP: Moral March Against Trump's Cabinet of Bigotry
Join the faith community and MomsRising when we march on Monday, January 9, because on Tuesday, the US Senate begins hearings on Jeff Session's nomination to lead the U.S. Department of Justice.
We march, because Sen. Sessions has a history of racist rhetoric, and was even rejected by a Republican Senate Judiciary Committee over his troubling record on basic civil rights. As a U.S. Senator, he has repeatedly opposed legislation that make our nation more equal and more just, including the Voting Rights Act and the Violence Against Women Act,but has defended banning all Muslims entering the United States. Sessions’ recent embrace of policies that oppose birthright citizenship and legal immigration are deeply disturbing from a man who would be the chief legal defender of the rights of all Americans as the U.S. Attorney General.
We march, because we cannot stand idly by as bigotry, systemic racism and white supremacy are being normalized and elevated to such power!
Who: Rev. William Barber, Rev. Jennifer Butler, Rabbi Jason Kimelman-Block, and all righteous people who oppose Donald Trump’s efforts to use his Presidency to normalize and elevate bigotry, hate and systemic racism
What: Moral Monday March on Capitol Hill
When: Monday, January 9, 2017, 11:00 AM
Where: Lutheran Church of the Reformation (Lutheran Church of the Reformation, 212 East Capitol St NE, Washington, DC 20003 View Map)
