Act Now! United to END Racism
From James Levert Davis, Servant Bishop, Second Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church
 
MEMORANDUM
TO:          Second Episcopal District Clergy and Congregation
 
FROM:      James Levert Davis, Servant Bishop
                                  
DATE:       March 5, 2018
 
SUBJECT:   ACT NOW: Unite to END Racism
 

This Memorandum is being sent in conjunction with all 13 Continental U.S. Districts, under the leadership of Bishop Frank Madison Reid, Social Ecumenical Officer and Chair of Social and Political Action of the AME Church and Bishop John White, Presiding Prelate, Fourth Episcopal District (stand-in for Bishop Reid). 

We encourage clergy and congregations in the Second Episcopal District  to support and participate in the  A.C.T. (awaken confront transform) NOW! Rally. This rally will take place in Washington, DC, April 4, 2018 on the National Mall.  
 
The purpose of the rally is to bring to the attention of our nation inequities in criminal justice, education, jobs, health care, voting rights, environmental practices and immigration.  The attached documents contain information on the upcoming rally and other activities. For more information you may access the ACT NOW Website @www.rally2endracism.org
  
The National Council of Churches along with its members and partners, under the leadership of Bishop W. Darin Moore, Chair of the National Council of Churches and Presiding Prelate of the Mid-Atlantic Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion (AMEZ) Church, and people of all faiths and beliefs, will assemble on the National Mall to mark 50 years since Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination.  To proclaim in Dr. King’s words:  “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” ― (Martin Luther King Jr.Letter from the Birmingham Jail)

As sons and daughters of Richard Allen we are very much aware of the price and relentless fight for social justice and equality. The struggle is not new to us. For it was out of protest against spiritual, social, political and economic injustices that the African Methodist Episcopal Church was born. We must continue in the struggles for justice and equality for all people. 

Inasmuch as this historic event is taking place in an area of the Second Episcopal District, we want to ensure that we are well represented. Our presiding elders will be in touch to assess our local church participation.

Thank you in advance for your participation and support in the rally and the continuing struggle to pursue human rights for all people. As is always your custom, be empowered as you demonstrate the magnificence of the Second Episcopal District. 

In the Spirit of Empowering the People
