National Council of Churches of Christ ACT Now initiative is being directed the Rev. Dr. Sharon Watkins, our former General Minister and President. A major launch will occur on the National Mall in Washington, DC on April 4, 2018. The NCC is requesting 500 to attend from each communion. This initiative calls on the white church to acknowledge and own its complicity in racism in American Christianity. As a pro-reconciliation, anti-racism church for nearly 50 years, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) surely stands in solidarity with this important work. You can find more information and sign up for updates at this link: http://www.
CCIW’s Pro-Reconciliation-Anti-Racism team will be sharing information on the April 4 event in upcoming eNews. We are working with the Illinois Conference of Churches and the Wisconsin Council of Churches to bring folks the event
