A Call to Prayer and Action in 2017
As we enter a new year, the need for people of faith and conscience to unite for justice is as great as ever.
Nationally, we face an incoming administration poised to roll back worker protections, access to healthcare, environmental regulations, safety net programs, and the rights of immigrants and minorities. Here in New York, our state remains the most unequal in the country, with more than 3 million people living in poverty – including 1 in 5 of our children.
Monday, January 9 is the start of the new legislative session in New York. Join us that evening in Albany or online for an interfaith service, lifting up our shared moral values and calling on New York to be a leader in promoting social and economic justice.
In 2017, we need to tackle the gross economic injustice in our state and stand strong against threats to our communities. Let’s start the year by coming together to pray, sing, reflect and act for a better New York.
