Unite to End Racism Rally in Washington, DC

The Lehigh Conference of Churches invites you to join us on a transformational journey. Unite to End Racism is both a rally and a call to action. We are sponsoring a bus departure from the Lehigh Valley to events taking place in Washington, DC, on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr on Wed., Apr. 4, 2018.

* Required information

General Information

  • Unite to End Racism (nationalcouncilofchurches.us/actnow) is organized by the National Council of Churches with partners the National African American Clergy Network, Conference of National Black Churches, Sojourners, Franciscan Action Network, Churches Uniting in Christ, and Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, and its member communions.

  • Buses will depart at 4 a.m. on Wednesday, April 4 (Allentown location TBA), for overnight travel to Washington, DC. We will join people from around the nation for an Interfaith Service of Prayer and Preparation at the Lincoln Memorial and a Rally on the National Mall. At the end of the day, buses will return to the Lehigh Valley.

  • Register soon: The cost is $60 per person. Space on the buses is limited, and reservations are first-come, first-served. We will need at least 55 people to make this possible. If you are interested in extending this journey, please scroll down to read about the Unite to End Racism + Day of Action option.

Unite to End Racism + Day of Action

  • If there is enough interest we are also offering an option for people to register for Unite to End Racism + Day of Action. The Day of Action bus will follow the same rally plan as the other buses. Instead of heading home on the 4th, participants will stay an extra night in Washington, DC, with hotel lodging, and head to Capitol Hill for legislative advocacy on Thursday, April 5. This will help our leadership and our faith communities, to build connections across the lines that typically divide us. We are looking for people willing to dream together about what comes next. When you commit to this trip, we pray that you will commit to an ongoing conversation!
