Congregate C’ville: Faith Driven. Mobilized for Justice. Acting Together.
We invite you to support #LoveOverFear!
This is the giving page for supporting the efforts of faith leaders in Charlottesville who are mobilizing the #CvilleClergyCall. We will non-violently confront white supremacy at the massive Alt-Right rally on August 12 in Charlottesville. Congregate is urgently asking 1000 clergy and faith leaders to worship and stand with us in Charlottesville the weekend of August 11-13. You can read much more and register to come at CongregateCville.com.
This is vital project with many moving parts and required resources. Restoration Village Arts is operating as fiscal sponsor of Congregate’s clergy call and lead organizer as a dynamic expression of RVA’s mission.
Congregate C’ville is a “school for public witness.” Congregate organizes and equips faith leaders and those who would follow them to show up for justice. Congregate’s Lead Organizer is Brittany Caine-Conley, who will soon be an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. Rev. Seth Wispelwey, Directing Minister of Restoration Village Arts (RVA), is Consulting Organizer for Congregate.
