In an era of hate speech, hate crimes, and racial profiling, Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream of "the Beloved Community" is more important than ever. The interfaith community of Portland is therefore calling on all people who believe in this dream to gather on Sunday, Jan. 22, two days after the Presidential inauguration, to stand in solidarity with all those who stand to be marginalized and silenced by the incoming administration.

We will meet a Congregation Beth Israel at 3:30 p.m., hear from Steve Wax of the Oregon Justice Resource Center about resources for those who have experienced a hate crime, followed by a special liturgy and silent march to Pioneer Square. Then, starting at 4:30 pm, we will practice silent prayer and meditation for one hour in the name of Peace, Justice, and the Integrity of All Creation. If you're able, please bring a battery-powered candle that can endure the elements and keep shining out as we pray together.

SCHEDULE:


3:30 p.m. – Meet at Congregation Beth Israel (1972 NW Flanders)

4:30 p.m. – Silent March to Pioneer Square

5 p.m. – Silent Prayer & Meditation in Pioneer Square

6 p.m. – Closing Prayer & Departure
