Our collective community remembers that we belong to each other. We believe we have the power to rise up together and lean into the strength of our foundational bonds of justice for all.
We have the power to roll away stones of white supremacy, greed, and state violence. As we roll the stones away, we commit to co-create systems in which resources are shared, allowing our imaginations to generate radically new ways of living and thriving in a more just society.
We believe that the stone of injustice will be rolled away in our rejection of the status quo. As Easter people we recommit ourselves to choose actions of transformation. Together we pledge our efforts to bring about greater justice for all peoples and Earth itself.

During this extended period of physical distancing + social solidarity, the need for “Hope Rising in Courageous Community” is more important than ever. Please share this resource widely and take heart in the words of author and poet, Alice Walker, who reminds us that “Human sunrises are happening all over the earth,” and that the work to “bring peace, light, compassion” to this world shines on.

We live in a post-truth culture, where “alternative facts” replace actual facts and polarizing judgments have more weight than straightforward evidence. In our post-truth world, it is not that the truth, science and facts have ceased to exist but that they are so easily dismissed.
As Martin Luther King, Jr. once proclaimed, “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”
Please join us to boldly proclaim the truth and call out the lies and to be a people that live the truth so that we can create a world of justice and peace. We are grateful to be joined in the Good Friday Walk for Justice by groups and organizations that are living the truth in action and awakening.
