The Senate is on the verge of voting to demolish health care for millions women, children, persons with disabilities, and many others. This is not health care reform — it is health care attack that is cruel, morally unjust and inhumane — and incompatible with our baptismal promise to respect the dignity of every human being.

This week we honor World Refugee Day (June 20th) by sending letters to our members of Congress urging them to continue making the United the States a source of protection and hope for the persecuted and to increase the number of refugees admitted to the US while also maintaining robust domestic and international funding for refugees and host countries.
The All Saints Church staff and vestry commends the City of Pasadena for commemorating today as National Gun Violence Awareness Day … AKA #WearingOrange Day. Just as hunters wear orange in the woods to protect themselves and others from gunfire so will we: while also expressing our support for common sense gun solutions that will save lives and make our community safe and healthy for all people.
For the past 18 years, Peace Over Violence has run its Denim Day campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim.
Monday, May 1 | 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
May 1st is a day of action, prophetic resistance and witness to the pain and suffering occurring in our communities. On May 1st, we join with others across the nation to stand with the oppressed, to march for rights and lift up the voices and stories of working families in Los Angeles. Muslims. Immigrants. Workers. Unions. Women. The LBGT community. Sanctuary cities. And anyone who dares to speak the truth to power. We will respond and resist in the spirit of King and Milk. Huerta and Chavez. March with us on May 1 from MacArthur Park to LA’s City Hall as we show the world what real power looks like.
Every Sunday we put our faith into action at the Action Table on the lawn at All Saints Church. Last Sunday — March 26th — 524 All Saints members signed this letter thanking Representative Adam Schiff for his work on the House Intelligence Committee.
At All Saints Church each week we put our faith into action. This week we write to our Senators and Representatives to express our opposition to the President’s recent, revised executive order entitled, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” — also referred to as the “Muslim Ban 2.0.”
Every three years the Episcopal Church meets for its General Convention — a ten day gathering of legislation and liturgy bringing thousands of Episcopalians together from around the church. The next General Convention is schedule for July 2018 in Austin, Texas … but that could change. In response to a transgender discriminatory “bathroom bill” (Senate Bill 6) filed last month in the Texas Legislature, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and President of the House of Deputies Gay Clark Jennings are kicking up some dust with their letter to the Speaker of the House … written January 30th and released today.
PASADENA HOMELESS COUNT: THEY COUNT, WILL YOU?

The Office for Urban Initiatives at Fuller Theological Seminary, the Partnership to End Homelessness (the Continuum of Care in the City of Pasadena), and the City of Pasadena, are once again looking for individuals to volunteer for the 2017 City of Pasadena Count and Subpopulation Survey. Can we count on you?
Tomorrow — November 8, 2016 — is Election Day: the day we put our faith into action by exercising our privilege and our duty to vote. In addition to the prayers we continue to raise from All Saints Church for the hope and healing in our nation, we also offer this “Election Eve Toolkit.”
