Approaching the one-year anniversary of the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9th, we face a current political and social climate that continues to belie Black and Brown humanity - where, without impunity, the young black body of Mike Brown lay in the street for over 4 hours in the blazing summer heat.

As we continue to mourn, we also believe we are called to lean into a ministry and theology of resistance, reclaiming the hope and power inherent in our prophetic faiths, giving us courage and healing for the days ahead.

During this Week of Righteous Resistance, we are inviting you to wrestle with the principalities and powers that manifest themselves in racial prejudice, systemic evil and violence, and religious apathy and complicity.
