Join Texans Together for the Moral Revival
There is a disconnect between values and the public policy of today. Public officials seek to distract the public with "hot button" issues of today to invoke fear, anger, and hate. They cloak their policies in meaningless rhetoric, and it divides us, pits us against each other. It keeps us from seeing the real harm as public policy continues to deepen the injustice and inequality in our society. People are disenfranchised, marginalized, and have no opportunity to advance. We are building a society where the only thing that matters is the pursuit of more money and losing sight of the importance of faith and morality. We are losing the ability to empathize, and strive to improve our communities.
We must be better. We must take a stand.
We have to revive hope and acceptance.
Join us for “The Revival: Time for a Moral Revolution of Values” at St Johns United Methodist Church at 2019 Crawford Street in downtown Houston. In the morning from 9 am to 2 pm there is a training for leaders of faith and morals to improve state and local activism. At 7pm, there will be a revival “to lift up the voices and testimonies of people who have been hurt and impacted by regressive policies and extremism in local and national politics.”
This revival is for "any and every person that wants to make a change in our communities and have national change."
The Moral Revival is described as “a national multistate tour to redefine morality in American politics, heads to over 20 states and the District of Columbia in response to extremism in state and national politics. “The Revival” challenges leaders of faith and moral courage to be more vocally opposed to harmful policies that disproportionately impact the poor, people who are ill, children, immigrants, communities of color, and religious minorities. While the tour is led by national organizations, local partnerships have been built in each state by inviting groups. Local faith and moral leaders lead ontheground organizing and advocacy efforts to advance moral public policy agendas in their respective states.”
Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, the Rev. Dr. James Forbes Jr., the Rev. Dr. Traci Blackmon, and Sr. Simone Campbell supported by local clergy will lead the Revival. The uplifting service will focus on empowering leaders to refocus the national discussion away from destructive extremism and back on the important work of ending poverty, racial inequalities, and issues that are marginalizing our communities. The five key areas of the social agenda will be “the economic liberation of all people; access to quality education for every child, healthcare access for all; criminal justice reform; And ensuring historically marginalized communities have equal protection under the law.”
Join us and bring your voice to the solution. We can move away from the extremism that divides us and makes us less. We can and will bring the focus back on ending the harmful agendas that are destroying the future of our children and communities. Together we can make a difference.
