Equipping Ourselves for Solidarity

Sanctuary Congregation Training

DMV congregations will gather to learn how faith communities can provide sanctuary and support to families, friends, and neighbors under threat of discrimination, detainment, and deportation. Facilitated by PICO National Network, the training will address the many ways of providing sanctuary beyond hosting a family; what comes next once you’ve decided to become a sanctuary; and redefining sanctuary to include ALL people who targeted by hate and exclusion. Registration is open to All Souls members and congregations through the DC Metro area.

Mon., Feb. 13, 6-9pm, All Souls Church.

Melissa Harris-Perry Has a Story to Tell

On the weekend of the Women’s March on Washington—and on the first Sunday of a new administration—we were delighted to welcome to All Souls professor, author, Unitarian, and former MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry, one of our nation’s pre-eminent African American public intellectuals. Dr. Harris-Perry shared words of wisdom and courage for the road that lies ahead. You can listen to both her 9:30 and 11:15 sermons.
