The Wisconsin Council of Churches is sending buses to the April 4 Rally To End Racism in Washington D.C., organized by the National Council of Churches to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination. Minnesota folks are welcome to ride to D.C. with our Wisconsin friends, departing from any of four Wisconsin cities, including Eau Claire.

The registration form will register you both for the national rally and for the bus ride there, and will require payment for the bus ($250 total). On the form, there is a field that asks “How did you learn of this event?”  Please write “Minnesota Council of Churches” there, so that Wisconsin can keep track of how many folks from Minnesota are on the bus. 

Register by March 1. Please let Julia Hobart (julia.hobart@mnchurches.org) know if you have any questions.

Learn more and register.
