Calling all Black and Brown clergy and community members
Friday, January 19, 2024 11 AM to 1:30 PM
Heritage United Methodist Church
112 W 52nd St, Los Angeles, CA 90037
Join Pastor Cue Jn’Marie and Rev. Walter Contreras, CA Senator Lola Smallwood-Cuevas, and Los Angeles City Controller Kenneth Mejia for a Latino Soul Food Brunch at the 4th Annual King Chavez Celebration.
This event, co-sponsored by CLUE, SCLC-LA, and Blue Avenue LLC, will facilitate a space for our Black and Brown clergy and community members to listen and share the struggles of our communities. The Black and Brown Clergy and Community Coalition builds trust through relationships so we can face injustice in solidarity.
At the 2024 King Chavez Gathering we’ll talk about how LA City resources can enhance community safety and community strength. Students Deserve will share their experience and vision for safety in public schools. We’ll renew the call for lifting up Black and brown workers through training programs that lead to good jobs. And we’ll explore the role that faith communities can play TODAY in building the Beloved Community.
Together we can build a Los Angeles in which everyone is cared for, absent of poverty, hunger, and hate. Join us!
Our separate struggles are really one – a struggle for freedom, for dignity and for humanity– Martin Luther King, Jr.
From the depth of need an despair, people can work together, can organize themselves to solve their own problems and fill their own needs with dignity and strength.– Cesar Chavez
Solidarity is Sacred
Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice educates, organizes, and mobilizes religious leaders and community members to walk with workers while advocating for good jobs, safe workplaces, and healthy communities.
We can stand with low-wage workers, mostly immigrants and communities of color, because people like you support an organized and connected interfaith movement for economic justice.
Please join the movement to build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top.
