The 40 days of march and civil disobedience on Mondays in state capitols and elsewhere was the beginning to organizing and empowering each state to make a difference in the moral practice of our country. EUUC has been at each act of civil disobedience and each march and was represented by members of our congregation participating in the CD act and being arrested and by members standing up to give moral witness, be peace keepers and help with safety and health. Court dates are yet to come for many who were arrested.
On June 23rd the Poor Peoples Campaign marched and participated in acts of civil disobedience again. This time the Saturday march and act of civil disobedience was in Seattle and you would have seen it on TV (4,5,7,13) stations that evening. Once again, members from EUUC were a part of those arrested for civil disobedience and this time some were kept in jail overnight. Members were also there standing up to give moral witness, be peace keepers and help with safety and health. The message of civil disobedience and standing up to give moral witness to call attention to racial injustice, the injustice of how people who are poor, who are differently abled, immigrants and others who are disenfranchised are treated in our system was stated by news reporters as they reported why this was happening. Thus we at EUUC continue to be a part of the Campaign. Generally, notice is going out by e-mail as events are coming up. Stay tuned.
