UCC Gathering at Poor People's Campaign Mass Rally

We are looking forward to spending time with you at the Poor People’s Campaign Mass Rally on Saturday, June 23. We are especially excited to come together for a special UCC meet-up and light breakfast before we head down to the Mall.

Poor People's Campaign Rally InfoWe still have space, so if you want to bring a friend or another member of your congregation along, please know that they are welcome. (Please encourage them to register as they are able so we can have an accurate head count for breakfast.)

Here’s a rundown of some of the logistics. If you have further questions, contact our office manager, Suanne Breen (breens@ucc.org; 202-543-1517) or myself (sorenses@ucc.org; 202-543-1517).

Schedule:
Please join us at First Congregational United Church of Christ. Come anytime between 8:00-9:30 am to connect with other UCC marchers, grab a bite to eat, and prepare our spirits for a day of action.

Afterwards we will walk down together to the Poor People’s Campaign Mass Rally on the National Mall at 7th Street to hear the stories that are at the heart of the campaign, listen to words of inspiration and spirit-filled music, and connect with advocates from around the country. This is a short walk, just over a half mile and mostly downhill. At 1:00 pm, after the close of the rally, we will march down Independence Avenue to the U.S. Capitol.

Getting There:
First Congregational UCC is located at 945 G St. NW on the lower two floors of a modern, mixed-use building. Look for a modern structure with a two-story grey brick base and eight floors of reflective glass above. There is an abstract bronze cross at the northeast corner of 10th and G Streets, just outside the church doors.

First Congregational UCC is easily accessible from the Metro Center (Red, Orange/Silver/Blue) or Gallery Place (Red, Yellow/Green) metro stops. Their website is firstuccdc.org.
