Isaiah MN is a faith-based community organization that seeks to be “a vehicle for congregations, clergy, and people of faith to act collectively and powerfully towards racial and economic equity in the state of Minnesota.” Isaiah is holding a “Binding the Covenant” gathering on Saturday, June 28th, at which they plan to gather with 1,500 people of faith from Minnesota and the gubernatorial candidates at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
The Core Organizing Team and the Service and Social Responsibility Team are inviting you to attend this Binding the Covenant Event. We think this event is so important that we’re providing a charter bus for transportation. The bus will leave First UCC at 11:45 a.m. for the Minneapolis Convention Center. The event lasts from 1:00 – 4:30 p.m.
Here’s what Isaiah MN is saying about this event:
We have invited Minnesota’s gubernatorial candidates and other top elected legislative leaders from both parties to join us, and join with us, as we tell and celebrate our compelling story of power and race. We will join in a sacred covenant, pledging to stand with each other and for our shared values of economic dignity, pathways to opportunity and racial equity.
We will proclaim our new vision of a path from our own times of systemic oppression and inequity to God’s Commonwealth. This prophetic path shows how we will transform the structures of power to be just, sustainable and to serve God’s vision for our lives in community with one another.
Please contact Pastor Todd or Carolyn Fure-Slocum if you would like to attend. Register below for the bus and the event.
