On Saturday, April 1, 2017 in Washington, DC and at satellite locations around the world, spiritual leaders, practitioners, people of faith, and all those who value the sanctity of humanity will join together with #BlackLivesMatter for 24 hours of #SacredResistance.  Summoning our collective spiritual energy, we will pray, chant, sing, dance, meditate, drum, and invoke all that is sacred in order to drive out hate, oppression, and fear and usher in the spirit of divine peace, justice, and love.  People of all faiths and those with no defined spiritual practice are encouraged to participate from 12:01AM to 11:59PM on April 1st.  Programming in Washington, DC will be held at Meridian Hill Park beginning at 11AM and synchronized actions are being convened around the globe.

How to get involved:

  • Join us in Washington DC! Gather and begin sacred practices as early as 12:01AM; join us at Meridian Hill Park for official programming beginning at 11AM.
