During this time of organizing and resistance, may we strengthen our resolve to work for racial justice and build beloved community. And Kicking off in the New Year on the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend and concluding with a Valentine’s Day transformation, we will be honoring and observing Thirty Days of Love—a time for love, community, and prophetic action. From Saturday, January 16 through Sunday, February 14, 2016 people of faith and conscience will show up for Black Lives Matter and racial justice throughout the country as part of Thirty Days of Love.
“If you want a religious tradition that respects you and challenges you at the same time to be your best self [your most authentic self] in everything you do in your life, then this is the tradition for you.”
