Righteous Resistance Symposium
May 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:30am, repeating until May 19, 2018
Join PICO California for the 2018 Righteous Resistance Symposium, May 18-19th.
- Friday begins at 6pm with FELLOWSHIP + LIVE CONCERT with Sol Development! Gather to celebrate and heal, across RACE + FAITH + DIFFERENCE. Amazing music with amazing people.
- Saturday begins at 8am with LEARNING + PANELS + BREAKOUTS for skill building around responding to state violence, racist attacks, ice raids and organizing through poor peoples campaign, digital organizing, and electoral work. It’s FREE, but we need you to register!
We face a current political and social climate that continues to belie black humanity – where, without impunity, a young black man can be followed into his grandmother’s backyard and shot in the back six times out of the 20 shots fired at him.
Will we stand on the sideline or will we join the important struggle that Black Americans & many others daily endure to live free from racism, violence & terror?
We believe we are called to lean into a ministry and theology of resistance, reclaiming the hope and power inherent in our prophetic faiths, giving us courage and healing for the days ahead.
There are many different ways that your congregation and community can enter into solidarity with us.
There will be a time of celebration and fellowship, and training around resisting State Violence, ICE Raids, 2018 Election, Digital Organizing, and the Poor Peoples Campaign Workshops.
We are inviting you to wrestle with the principalities and powers that manifest themselves in racial prejudice, systemic evil and violence, and religious apathy and complicity.
We need you here; it is our duty to fight for freedom!
