How We Resist.jpg
 

We believe that we are one people

Our faith traditions teach us that we are all interconnected.

In the words of James Baldwin, we believe that "each of us, helplessly and forever, contains the other."  We reject the impulse of empire that seeks to divide and devour our communities.  We must always remember that we belong to each other.  None of us are free until all of us are free.

We believe that our fight is one fight. 

We believe, in the words of Pope Francis, that "there is an invisible thread joining every one of the forms of exclusion."  Our faith calls us to see that thread and to untangle the systems of oppression that deny our shared humanity and creates a world with such immense suffering and where so many people are deprived of their dignity and basic needs.  We are proud to follow in the tradition of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and resist the "triple evils" of white supremacy, hyper-capitalism and militarism.  We seek to be "prophets of the resistance" and are calling for a radical awakening and "revolution of values" that will transform California.
