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.

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.

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.”
