Over 1,000 clergy from 31+ states, from all denominations, ages, and backgrounds
One thousand ministers of all denominations will convene in Washington, D.C., to reaffirm their commitment to the social justice movement and to stand in solidarity in the spirit and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Clergy will hold the Trump Administration and Attorney General Jeff Sessions accountable in the wake of an increase in hate crimes, mass incarceration, and discrimination.
