Standing with Our Neighbors: Pursuing Justice

Standing with Our Neighbors: Pursuing Justice

Members of Faith Voices of Southwest Missouri and the NAACP Springfield Branch will offer nonpartisan, interfaith prayers, faith reflections and song at the offices of our area federally elected officials.  Speakers will ask that our elected officials take a strong stand for our values of loving our neighbors and will urge our officials to oppose the nomination of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, to object to Steve Bannon’s position in the White House, and to speak out against the lies that divide and distract the American public and are used to legitimize unjust policy decisions

We are gathering at the Council of Churches  where we will carpool to the offices.
