Watch: Moral Witness Wednesday A Faith Leaders Call To Action
There comes a time when enough is enough, and religious leaders must come out conspicuously and prophetically.
Moral Witness Wednesday took place in Washington D.C. on June 12, 2019.
We gathered at New York Ave Presbyterian Church and marched to Lafayette Square Park, where we were first blocked from entering by Secret Service. Later, when they finally let us into the park, we finished our rally and went to the gate in front of the White House. Secret Service put up police tape, making it a felony charge if we crossed that line. We will be back!

“Go to the royal palace and deliver this Message. Say, ‘Listen to what God says, O King of Judah, you who sit on David’s throne—you and your officials and all the people who go in and out of these palace gates.
This is God’s Message: Attend to matters of justice. Set things right between people. Rescue victims from their exploiters. Don’t take advantage of the homeless, the foreigners, the orphans, the widows. Stop the murdering!
If you obey these commands, then kings who follow in the line of David will continue to go in and out of these palace gates mounted on horses and riding in chariots—they and their officials and the citizens of Judah. But if you don’t obey these commands, then I swear—God’s Decree!—this palace will end up a heap of rubble.” -Jeremiah 22:1-5
